Growing Huge Gummy Bears is such great fun!
We were first purchased the gummy bears and I told the boys were we going to try and ‘grow’ them, they thought I was joking.
First, we measured the gummy bears. They were 2 cm high and 1 cm wide. We didn’t measure the depth, maybe we should have. We then recorded all our information.
We placed one gummy bear of each flavour/colour into a container of water and waited.
We did measure them over the next couple of hours and could see them gradually get bigger.
After 24 hours they were huge and had lost most of their colour. Some of them were also starting to break.
When we measured them again, the height and width was doubled.
I suggest that you don’t eat them as not only would they taste horrible, they would probably be full of bacteria from sitting out all night in the open.
