Color Swirls in Water 2


I got so excited when I saw this idea on Homeschool Den, especially because that's exactly what we have been doing that past few with food coloring. (See post on Color Swirls in Water and Color Wheel Activity 1

You can their explanation of the experiment here.

You need:
  • a glass or vase full of water
  • few drops of food coloring
  • oil in another bowl (the quantity of oil should be enough to make a cm thick layer for it to work well)
  • a toothpick to break down the drops of food coloring in the oil
  • a spoon to fully scrape off the oil and food coloring droplets 

And see how ours looked like !

In comparison to our previous color swirls activity, the tiny droplets came down slower than they came down through the shaving cream. The effect was simply gorgeous ! Subhanallah !

My kids pointed out "Mama look at the top too, it looks so cool from the top. Take a picture, take a picture"

We want to do this again with a light behind to see how it glows !

What do you think ?
