Now that Valentine’s day is over my house is overflowing with candy from the kids. In efforts to avoid the impending candy rush that is bound to happen as soon as my kids figure out where I have hidden the candy, we have started doing various science experiments and projects using our candy. Who said you had to eat it anyways?! These Conversation Heart Watercolors have created a fantastic paint and kept my kids occupied and creating for quite some time!
This project originally started out as a science experiment that we did last year. When we revisited Dissolving Candy Hearts my kids ended up taking the experiment in a different direction once their hearts had fully “melted”. Knowing that my kids wanted to make a watercolor paint with their hearts, we did change up some of it ahead of time. Make sure to visit our science experiment on Melting Hearts to expand on this activity with!
