milk art experiment...

ok... i'm not a very science-y girl... but maizie and marina both really enjoy it... it's maizie's favorite class {besides art} and marina loves to go to the science lab that's new to her school this year...

i saw this thing on pinterest called milk art... {you can see it here... thanks for sharing flutter, flutter}... since it had the word art in it, i checked it out because art is more my speed}...

it's like a mini experiment... and it's pretty fun to watch... 

all you need:

 milk {a thin layer of 2% or higher on the bottom of a plate}

 food coloring {i only had regular blue food coloring left so i used it and i pulled out the green gel coloring from the "rainbowl cake"

dish soap {i used the method brand from target}

once you have the thin layer of milk on the bottom of your plate, add drops of food coloring in the center... then squirt some dish soap in the center of that...

stand back and watch... the girls thought it was pretty awesome... {i was so busy watching that i forgot to take a picture of that step}...it all separates... and the colors move all around... mixing and blending... when it finally stopped swirling this is what it looked like.... 
the earth... 
pretty neat- don't ya think?
the girls wanted to document it, too... they always see me taking pictures of everyday moments and i think it's rubbing off on them... not a bad thing :)...

 you probably have everything you need right in your kitchen... give it a try... it's all about making memories...
