Sometimes we end up with way more candy than I want my kids eating. Luckily, candy isn’t just for eating anymore! Using the fantastic ideas below you can now use candy to do kitchen science experiments, build complex structures, and play candy math games! I will show you how to use candy to make your kids smarter. Your kids will love you for it (because CANDY!) and you can rest easy knowing they are using their brains and learning some cool stuff while on a sugar-induced high.

Make math, science, and engineering more interesting and fun by playing candy math games, experimenting with candy, and building complex candy structures!
