Magic milk and swirling colors experiment – My Little Scientist


Magic milk and exploding colors experimentIt’s one of the awesome science experiments that will wow your kids and turn out to an art project. A perfect mix of science, art and fun. All you need is milk, liquid food coloring and dish soap to see the colors moving and swirling into amazing patterns.

Pour the milk in a shallow container, add few drops of many colors and dip a q-tip in liquid dish soap, ask your kid to poke the food coloring and let the magic start!

Magic milk and exploding colors experimentThe reaction of the soap disrupting the surface tension of the milk causes the colors to radiate away from the q-tip ( In simple terms, the soap breaks apart the molecules of fats and proteins in the milk and he chases them trying to join with them). The more you poke the colors the more patterns you get! it was really spectacular. We did this experience so many times that we finished all the milk we had at home. Who cares! i love the face of my kid when he is super happy and exploring new things.Magic milk and exploding colors experiment

I cherish the time with my kid and invite all the parents to play with theirs and enjoy this priceless quality time. I can’t wait until Joud becomes the age when he can join his brother to our playtime.
