As you can see when our letter was floating, the candy coating had completely dissolved into the water, but how cool is that? Seriously cool.
OK, it's true, we can't stop doing these - Loralee has such a great site full of ideas, this one is called floating letters. The kids should place the candy (skittles or M&Ms) submerged in water. Don't stir, just leave it, for awhile. Come back when you remember to check it (1/2 hour +). You may need to carefully swirl the water to raise the letter up if you don't see anything, but if you still don't see anything after that, come back later.
