Milk Magic

The Littlest Apple and I have re-visted the Fizzy Fun science experiment many, many times lately.  He never gets tired of it, but I was ready to introduce some other quick and easy experiments.  I’ve seen this cool milk magic experiment in many variations, but most recently on The Artful Parent and Our Best Bites.

Here’s what you will need:

Pour enough milk in a shallow dish to cover the bottom (we used a 9×13 Pyrex dish).  Using a dropper, add drops of liquid watercolors or food coloring to the milk.  This step is lots of fun and the colors look so pretty against the white milk, but the real fun is yet to come!

See how pretty this looks?  I love the vivid colors here!

Now carefully add one or two drops of dish soap to some of the larger areas of color, and watch as the colors swirl, mix and move!  This was truly mesmerizing to watch, and we repeated this experiment from scratch three times.  Very cool!
