I had seen this done before a few times on Pinterest and I was very interested to try it! I knew Master 4 would love it…it’s hard not to! Science & Art all swirled into one!
Check out our cool video at the top of this post!
You will need:
Full cream milk
Shallow dish (preferably see through)
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.
Now for the MAGIC!
Dip your cotton tips into the dishwashing liquid, then dip them into your milk. There is only one for this WOW!
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!
