We picked another science experiment this week, again involving water. It is a simple science experiment that both the kids were able to participate in and I had all the supplies in my cupboards.
Let’s call it the “Absorbing” Science Experiment.
Here is what you will need:
-three clear glasses
-two paper towels
-at least two different colors of food coloring
-something to stir with
-some willing junior scientists
Fill two glasses with water, about 3/4 of the way full. Then add a different food coloring in each glass of water. Be generous with the food coloring, at least 5-7 drops. Then stir the food coloring in the glasses.
Not only had the water and color absorbed through to the empty glass, all the glasses had the same amount of water in them! Very cool. We were hoping that the blue and red would have given us purple water but that didn’t happen. Next time we might try blue and yellow food coloring and try for green water. I got the experiment idea from All For Kids.
Have you and your kid’s tried any fun science experiments, I’d love to hear about them and try them out with my little ones.
