Science with Parrot – The Candle and Water Experiment

On Saturday just as I was about to pick out a science experiment for Parrot and I to do in his First Encyclopedia of Science book, my mother called.  While I was on the phone, Chris took over and decided to do an experiment that he remembered from his childhood.  I managed to capture the whole thing on video.

The Candle and Water Experiment

What you will need:

A tea-light candle
matches (for adult use only)
a plate
a cup
food coloring (optional)

Watch the video and see what happens to the water once the candle burns out.

Have you done any cool science experiments with your kids this week?
