- Put the pencil across the top of the jar and roll the string around the pencil until the weight is almost touching the bottom of the jar.
- Put the uncovered jar in a warm place and leave it alone for 2 to 3 days.
- Crystals will start growing on the string, on the jar and also on the surface of the sugar solution.
- Break up the crust each day so that the water can evaporate.
- When the water evaporates from the jar, more crystals will grow.
- When all the water has evaporated, you can eat the rock candy.
- Pull up on the pencil to remove the rock candy from the jar.
- With scissors, cut the weight and the pencil from the string.
- You can break off the little pieces of candy or eat the whole thing like a lollipop.
