Candy Activity #4- Does it Float?

I have to thank Tati fromWanna Jugar Withmigo and Elise from Inspiration Surrounds, Creativity Abounds for directing me to There are a TON of fun science experiments to try at this site. This day we decided to see what types of candy float. I whipped up this simple chart so that we could record the results of our experiment. D can identify the words "sí" and "no" so I had him make an "X" on the appropriate box to indicate if the candy floated or not.

D LOVED this experiment. Interestingly enough, only the Whoppers floated. Click here to find out why.


  1. LOVE this idea! I'll have to see if we still have enough candy left to do this one by the time we get to water in a few days.
    I'd love if you linked this up to my science linky.

  2. Me encanta!!! gracias por compartirlo!!

  3. I checked out this site after seeing the comment left in your post about the Halloween candy. Great idea!

  4. You've got some great candy ideas. The phone one looks really fun, and I love the craft ideas.

    Here's something we've done with candy--give each person 10 of one color, then push some in the middle and have the other person add some more to make a higher number (i.e. I put in 7 and say 10, so the other person adds 3.) Then they take away some of theirs, name a number, and you have to put in the right amount. My daughter and I had a lot of fun with that one.
