The Milk Experiment

This fun experiment is super easy to put together!

All you need is:

  • Whole milk
  • Dawn soap
  • Cotton swabs
  • Plastic dishes
  • Liquid food coloring (not gel).

Begin by pouring your milk into a dish. In a separate bowl pour some dish soap. Set out a container of cotton swabs. You will need a to change cotton swabs periodically for the experiment to keep working. Begin by dropping a drop of food color (use two different colors if you can) on each side of your plate.

After you have dropped in the food coloring, then dip one end of your cotton swab into the dish soap. Gently touch the soapy end of your cotton swab to the food coloring and see what happens! It is so fun! The food coloring starts shooting away from the dish soap! Put new dish soap on a new cotton swab periodically to get it to keep working!

This easy experiment is super quick to put together and still lots of fun! The kids loved making their food coloring dance around their plates!
