Activity : Rainbow milk 

I’ve seen this science experiment in a lot of sites and it looks really cool. Always wanted to try it and yesterday I had some milk left over in the fridge past it’s sell by date so I finally decided to try this experiment with Elijah. 

If we add few drops of food color to  milk and then touch it with dish soap the colors  swirl around. 

The science behind it was really interesting for me too. The soap which is a “degreaser” basically reacts with the far in the milk and causes that swirling movement.
