We are creating colourful sugar crystals. The materials are sugar, water, food colouring and a plate. First, we stirred the sugar into the water until it dissolved. I used lukewarm water to dissolve the sugar more easily. Still Mr K and Ms C took a long time to stir it. We added a few drops of food colouring. Mr K chose blue food colouring and Ms C choose pink.
Then we left the plate on the windowsill. With the sun’s heat, the water evaporates from the plate, leaving the sugar and colour behind.
This is Day 5: It took a lot of patience to turn these into blue crystals!
