Gummy Bear Science Experiment

I saw this experiment from Teach Preschool and I thought my girls would love it. You can do this experiment with any gummy candy, but I choose to use gummy bears.
First, we filled the plastic cups halfway up with cold water.
Then we placed one gummy bear in each cup and let them sit on the counter overnight.

Our observations: The gummy bear grew in size and lightened in color.

After, we removed the squishy gummy bear we noticed that the water had changed color too.  We smelled the water and it smelled sweet and fruity like a gummy bear.
 This was an simple experiment to do with my little scientists and we got to eat the unused gummy bears. :)
