Color Swirling Milk Experiment


I am so happy Naturally Curious Tots is back! I really enjoyed it, when we had time to do it that is :)

This weeks theme is colors.

I saw THIS idea over at The Shafer Family blog and knew it was exactly what i should do!

I poured a cup of milk into a bowl and let the kids choose what color food coloring i should put in. I squeezed in a few drops of each color.IMG_0149

I then added a few drops of dish soap and immediately the colors spread apart. It was really cool!IMG_0150

I then gave them a spoon to mix the colors and the result wasn't as pretty :/IMG_0151

So i added a couple more drops, of blue this time, and it was somewhat pretty again, but not for long.IMG_0152

I think it would've been neat if instead of mixing it with a spoon, we just added a drop more of a color and the soap and kept making it swirl around everytime we did so. Maybe next time :)
