I saw this fun lesson on a lovely website from England. Anything to do with chocolate is a bonus for me, so I thought the kids would love this and they did!
We started out sorting the m&m's by color, the kids had a blast doing this, when we were done sorting we observed which color had the most candies and which had the least.
I than added water and we went out the play....upon returning the m&m colored coating had melted away, the m&m logo had risen to the top and the kids were ready to paint with them. What fun the kids had painting with all the colors and a bonus was they smell great. We are saving our paintings to hang for our art show.
