Explore the History of Candy
Start the day with a mini history lesson about candy. Share stories about how candy has evolved over the years and the cultural significance of different candies. Share what your favorite candy was when you were a kid. This can be a great way to teach your kids about the past while enjoying some sugary treats.

Try the classic “Skittles Rainbow” experiment or explore the concept of density with the “Candy Density Tower.” There are so many ideas for this on the web. Your kids will be amazed by the fascinating results, and you’ll sneak in some science lessons in the process.
Candy Tasting Party
Host a candy tasting party and turn your home into a mini candy store. Provide an array of different candies and let your kids sample and rate them. Encourage them to describe the flavors, textures, and preferences, developing their taste buds and expanding their vocabulary.
Cooking and Baking
Why not take the opportunity to get in the kitchen and create delicious candy-themed recipes? You can bake cookies with candy toppings or make homemade candies together. Cooking together promotes essential life skills while having fun with sweet treats.
