It takes alot to keep the attention of my family....we all must suffer from ADD in greater and lesser degrees, so when we spent more than 90 minutes glued to our chairs in the breakfast room with this project.....well it needs to be shared.
Items you will need are a rather large shallow bowl (not metal), milk (ours was 2%), food coloring, dish washing soap, and thin wooden sticks (we used paint brush ends but you could use skewers, small dowels, toothpicks etc).
Pour the milk into the shallow bowl, about 3/4" deep. Add at least two (we used all four) colors and then dip the very end of your wooden stick into dish soap. Place the dipped end of the skewer into the milk and watch what happens. Do not move the skewer around. Just let the "energy" move the colors.
With some of us the color ran away from us only to surface elsewhere in the bowl. For others, it was like it was rushing to us. And then for GK she made tidepools of different colors while making a design circle with all the colors. I only have two still pictures but I did get some of our activity on a video and I posted it on youtube. Check it out....it's really fun.
I hope you will enjoy the video of the stinky shoe.....huh???
