Camp Warner Bros Week 2: Candy Science Week
Hi Tater Tots! This week, we’re going to have some fun with science, color mixing, and learning patience, to make a delicious treat inspired by the Steven Universe movie camp on Thursday.
(Time to still be determined, but I’ll let you know via email, so make sure you sign up for our camp here to get those emails.)
There will also be a special movie night viewing of the movie on Friday at 7 PM EST. So make sure you grab your copy of Steven Universe: The Movie today and join us on Zoom! The link will be sent out via email.
You can rent the movie on Amazon for $2.99, purchase a digital copy for $11.99, or grab the movie on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital for $14.99! It’s totally up to you! Just don’t forget to grab snacks! Lol (Priorities right!)
Camp Warner Bros Week 2 Movie
About Steven Universe: The Movie
After so many harrowing adventures, Steven and the Gems are ready to celebrate how far they’ve come with a movie musical! Little do they know they’re about to face their worst enemy yet.
Watch the trailer here
I’m not gonna lie I’m excited about this one! I’m a big fan of Cartoon Network, I grew up watching it as a kid, and even though I haven’t watched Steven Universe, I’m pretty sure my kid has. Plus I’ve heard lots of good stuff about the show, so I’m excited to watch this!
Camp Warner Bros Week 2 Activity
I’m also super excited for this activity. I’ve NEVER made rock candy before, so I can’t wait to do it with my daughter this week.
I’m not too excited about the wait time though, but we’ll see how this goes! Hopefully, it comes out great!
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!
Don’t forget to download your free camp checklist and movie review template below.
Movie review, say what? Yup! Lol Click here to watch our video to find out WHY your kid has been asked to write a movie review.
Hint: This was all my 8-year old’s idea. I swear! Lol

Don’t forget to sign up for camp so you get all notifications about what time we’re getting on Zoom for activities and to join in on the fun with us.
Of course, it’s not required for you to participate and you can totally do these activities on your own, but isn’t it always better with friends?
Oh, and make sure you share photos / videos on social media tagging @shayewyllie and using the hashtag #CampWBTaterTots so you can be entered to win Camper of the Week.
Which comes with a cool certificate and special prize.
Can’t wait to see you Tater Tots on Thursday and Friday!
