• Food Coloring
  • Milk
  • Dish Soap
  • Q-tip
  • Plate
  • A Paper Towel


  1. Prepare your work station. Place a plate on top of a paper towel on a flat surface.
  2. With some help from a parent, pour some milk into the plate till it is completely covered. The milk should be about ¼ of an inch deep.
  3. Around the center of the plate, place one drop of different colored food colorings in the milk.
  4. Place one end of the Q-tip into the center of the milk plate. Did anything happen?
  5. Now, pour a little bit of dish soap on the other end of the Q-tip. Try sticking that in the center of the milk plate. 
  6. Watch as the colors soar!
