Make Gummy Worm Ice Cubes

(9 ratings )

What You Need:

  • Ice cube tray
  • Filtered water
  • Bag of gummy worms

What You Do:

  1. Help your child place one gummy worm into each section of the ice cube tray.
  2. Fill the tray with cold water together. This is a perfect project for youngsters because things don’t have to be exact. Each gummy worm can be situated in a different position, in a little less or a little more water.
  3. Talk to your child about the difference between liquids and solids. Ask her what she thinks will happen when you put the tray in the freezer. Will the gummies prevent the water from turning into ice? Will it remain a liquid, turn into a solid, or something in between? Ask for her guess, or "hypothesis".
  4. Put the tray in the freezer until the ice cubes are ready. Inspect them with your child and discuss the results. Did the experiment turn out how she expected?
  5. Help your child put the ice cubes into her favorite beverage and watch her eyes light up as the ice cube melts revealing a yummy gummy worm swimming around in her drink.

Make extra gummy worm ice cubes for the Halloween party and let the spooky fun begin!
