#SELatHome | At-home Experiments

Hello Gardeners!


Science experiments are a wonderful way to show cause and effect and how our actions change outcomes. With this the kids stuck at home, there is no better time to do some at-home experiments with your gardeners!


Have any candy laying around? Try this #RacingRainbowExperiment!


  • Colorful candies - Skittles, Sweet Tarts, M&Ms, Smarties, etc.

  • Paper plates

  • Water

  • And something to track time (stopwatch, phone, clock)


Separate the candy so each kind has its own plate and place the candy around the edge of the plate. Gently pour water in the center of the candy circle and time how quickly the rainbow forms!



Make Ice Cream in a bag!


It's perfect! Complete the experiment and enjoy a sweet treat 🍦



Here's what you'll need:


  • whole milk

  • vanilla

  • sugar

  • salt

  • ice

  • large and small Ziplock bags
