It’s week 2 at Camp Warner Bros.! This week, we are going to have some fun with science, color mixing, learning patience and making a delicious treat .. Crystal Gems and watch Steven Universe: The Movie.
For this activity remember this has to be done with adult supervision at all times. Our kids were so excited to make their own Crystal Gems “AKA Rock Candy” My little guy actually sings the crystal gem song all day long so this was perfect for him and he really liked watching the sugar and water boil together but more intrigued to see the candy forming as the sugar cooled.
The process doesn’t take long, it is the waiting to see the Rock Candy form, which has been a lot of fun to keep checking back to see what it happening.
Here is the recipe to make your own.
The Science Behind The Fun:
As time passes (and the solution cools), the water will slowly evaporate from the solution. As the water evaporates, the solution will become more saturated with sugar. The sugar molecules will collect on the string, and the candy crystals will grow molecule by molecule!
Extra Science Fun:
Try making two jars of candy. In the first jar – seed your “Crystal Gem” Candy by rolling your string in water and sugar. In the second jar do not seed your string with sugar before growing. Determine if using seed sugar crystals changes the growth rate of your “Crystal Gem” Candy!
Once your Crystal Gems are ready to eat sit down and watch Steven Universe: The Movie!
Steven thinks his time defending the Earth is over, but when a new threat comes to Beach City, Steven faces his biggest challenge yet.
Two years have passed since Steven Universe resolved the ongoing conflict between Earth and the Diamonds and brought peace to the galaxy, seemingly allowing Steven and the Crystal Gems to live happily ever after. However, Steven’s past comes back to haunt him in the shape of a mysterious Gem hellbent on destroying him and everything he holds dear, including the Earth itself. Steven must now face the consequences of Pink Diamond’s actions, save the Earth and, once again, go on a path of self discovery and change to truly earn his happily ever after.
Steven Universe: The Movie is now available to own on Digital, Blu-ray & DVD!
