Candy Crystal Growing Kit

Rock Candy Crystals Growing Kit

Science You Can Eat!
by GeoCentral

Please Note: This Fun, Tasty & Educational Science Experiment Kit will Require Sugar and Food Coloring (if you desire colored crystals) from Your Kitchen among other common supplies listed below.

Crystals are one of nature's most beautiful creations, and a lot of minerals naturally occur in this form. Their shapes are determined by the internal pattern of atoms, which repeats itself again and again. As the crystals grow, variations in the shapes can, and often do, occur because of the differences in temperature, chemical composition and the amount of space that is available for their continued growth. These changes give us not just the many different shapes of crystals, but also the variations seen in the colors.

With the Candy Crystals Growing Kit and Adult Supervision, you'll be able to grow your own crystals, and then eat them! Also known as Rock Candy, Candy Crystals are created via the process of crystallization, the exact same process that creates them in the natural world. Instead of making them with minerals though, you'll be making them with your own sugar. The kit comes with almost everything you need to grow your own Rock Candy Crystals:

  • 2 break resistant covered jars and 6 sticks for crystal growing.
  • 6 small bags, 6 gift label stickers and 6 ribbons for packaging your crystal creations for gifting.
  • Complete instructions and learning guide to rock candy crystal formation.

In addition to the supplies in this kit you will need the following common items found in most kitchens:

  • 2.5 Cups of common table sugar,
  • 1 cup of tap water
  • Food coloring (optional) if you wish to create colored rock candy crystals
  • A measuring cup,
  • A saucepan and a stove to heat up the solution,
  • A wooden spoon

It takes a full seven days for your Rock Candy to
