My old preschool teacher posted a video of this on Facebook, so I thought we should try it. I mean, hey, she never steered me wrong in the past! (PS I love that my old preschool teacher is my friend on Facebook).
I saw the video while checking Facebook while the girls ate breakfast. I pulled out the ‘ingredients’ then and there. Why the heck not!?
Here’s what you need:
- Plate, it has to be deep enough to hold a good layer of milk
- Food coloring
- Dish soap
Pour a good amount of milk in your plate – when I first tried it, I don’t think I had enough milk, and it didn’t work as well. You want enough that the food coloring and dish soap can sort of float on the top.
Add drops of food coloring.
Add small drops of dish soap, and watch the colors spread and dance. It’s really fascinating!
We used this as an opportunity to talk about primary, secondary, and tertiary colors as they blended and mixed. Just kidding, that’s crazy.
We actually just used this as an opportunity to be amazed and have fun. Cause that’s what childhood is.
So cool. Thanks for the continuing preschool education, Mrs. Jones!
Do I need to add that you shouldn’t drink this milk? No, I don’t think I need to add that. Right?
