"Mm" is for Milk (Art)

How did my children make this awesome art?

The answer may surprise you!  It is Color Changing Milk, a science experiment we did yesterday morning!  

This was a super easy and fun experiment with milk, food coloring, and liquid dish soap!  Since my 4 year old is doing "Mm" this week in her Alphabet Boxes, I thought this would be a fun activity to do with all my cupcakes!  I got this idea from the Sun Scholars program that I purchased, downloaded, and printed.  

We put milk into a shallow dish and put one drop of different colors of food coloring into the center:

Then each child touched their plate of milk with a clean cotton swab and watched what happened:

We then added a drop of liquid dish soap to the other end of the cotton swab and put it in the milk.  These are some of our results...Beautiful Milk Art!

The Sun Scholars Program then had information about how this worked with a note that stated that the Milk Changing activity was found at Steve Spangler Science.  My children were more into the colors than the actual science behind it, but it was such a fun, easy and fascinating activity!  Go ahead, give it a try!

Hi Tracy,

Who would of thought that you could make art using milk. It did turn out so cool. I would imagine your children wanted to do this again and again!
