Peppermint Water Science Close Up of Mints

Not only is this simple peppermint water science activity a great chance to observe the candy dissolving in the water, it’s a wonderful opportunity to extend the learning time with water sensory play. We added our favorite magnifying glass to practice our observation skills and to talk about what was happening.

There was some mint sampling, smelling and touching as we observed the candies as they dissolved. Why do candy canes dissolve in water? They are made from sugar! We talked about sugar and water liking one another and bonding together causing a physical change or a change we can see! To learn more, check out this chemistry review. Use mini scoops, bottles, funnels, and a sieve to play!

We even explored air bubbles as we played and filled our container. I showed him how when we hold the bottle up it fills with air {even though we can’t see it} and then when we submerge the bottle, the water forces the air out making bubbles.
