With the kids being homeschooled for the time being lots of parents and caretakers are on the constant search for educational experiences.  How about making Kool-aid Rock Candy?!  The kids will love this and probably the parents too.

One of the coolest things about making rock candy is not only is it tasty delicious but it can also be taught as a science lesson.  There are several ways you can make Rock Candy.  I was on Pinterest the other day and found out you can make Rock Candy using Kool-aid and thought this would be super awesome to share with other parents.

Ok so now for the hard part.  Do you want the good news or the bad news?  Good news first, this activity is awesome and educational and yummy.  The bad news it takes two-weeks for the rock candy to form.

Most of the things you need you probably have around your house:

  • Water
  • A large pot
  • Sugar
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Kool-aid packets (VARIETY)
  • Mason Jars
  • Clothespins
  • Spoons
