Check out the instancing tab on the ParticleType ppg. You have a few different options on how you want the scale of the instances to be controlled. Can be by particle size or not.

maybe i didnt phrase the question right- i want the objects to scale over time a bit like smoke would, but using instances instead..

Like Jean-Paul mentioned, the instance scaling can be set to "By particle size". All you have to do is to animate the particle size over time (age mode).
