There’s my handsome little model. Add your milk to the dish…about 2 cms deep.

Then add a few drops of each food colouring colour to the milk – the more you add, the better ‘effect’ you will have. In saying that though, do not overcrowd the colours ie make sure they are not touching.

It’s amazing how quickly the colours shoot around the dish & mix with each other.  It’s like fireworks in a dish! The fat in the milk reacts with the dish soap!

Keep dipping your cotton tips into the dishwashing liquid & back into the milk mixture to keep the action going

Then start all over again! We did this about 3 times & every time was just as fun as the last! I can highly recommend this activity! My little man loved it & I know your kiddies will too!
