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 for the premiere of Steven Universe: The Movie! Now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital
We are huge Steven Universe fans and have watched all episodes of it. My daughter and I love the Crystal Gems and loved this experiment so much. We used the below recipe to create our own Crystal Gems. This time we made Ameytest but next time my daughter wants to make Sapphire.
Here is the recipe we used!
If you want to Save the Earth and bring peace to your galaxy with Steven Universe’s “Crystal Gem” Candy recipe it is really easy. These directions are super easy but they do require an adult’s supervision.
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!
The hardest thing so far has been patience. We told ourselves that we would give the Crystal Gem’s three days to do their magic before we touched them so as soon as I get out of work today that is exactly what we will be doing. Stay tuned! I am hoping they are magical!
If you haven’t seen Steven Universe yet, I highly recommend it. Steven Universe is a great cartoon for kids because it is so different. It is not geared toward girls or boys. It can be loved by everyone. If not for Steven this show could have been like any other girl driven show like Sailor Moon but Steven balances it out AND he is not afraid of his emotions or sharing his thoughts or feelings. I love that! These characters really discuss feelings which make their relationships stronger and their affection for each other something the viewer appreciates and respects.
