Rainbow Magic Milk 🌈

This is an easy science experiment that kids love because of the visual effects. Most of the ingredients you already have at home. It is great to spark a conversation about the hows/whys while also encourage creativity and promote independence. Great for all ages!


DIFFICULTY

  • Easy


MATERIALS

  • Milk

  • Food Coloring

  • Dish soap

  • Cotton Ball

  • Plate


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pour milk into the plate.

  2. Add drops of food coloring. Use as many colors as you can!

  3. Wet the cotton ball with soap.

  4. Drop it in the middle of the plate.

QUESTIONS TO ASK

  • What did you see? Why?

  • What if we change the liquid to water? or juice?


THE SCIENCE

Milk is made up of minerals, proteins, and fats. Proteins and fats are susceptible to changes. When the dish soap is added to the milk, those molecules run around and try to attach to the fat molecules in the milk.
