Milk Art

The other day while I was browsing through Pinterest searching for a project to do, I ran across a little fun art activity that looked interesting.  Since it only takes 3 common household “ingredients” I decided to hop up from the computer right then and give it a try.  It’s easy, quick, and fun to watch.  Take pictures to preserve your beautiful art!

milk (2% or higher was recommended)
liquid food coloring
dish soap

1.  Take a plate and pour in some milk.   You don’t need much; just enough so you can’t see the plate underneath.
2.  Drop 2-3 drops of each color food coloring in the center of the plate.  Place the colors near each other.
3.  Pour 1 drop of dish soap in the very center and watch the magic!

The food coloring will continue to move around slowly.  When it’s done (or your kids are ready to do it again) rinse the plate in the sink and go again!  You can also take a toothpick and swirl it around on the plate for more action.

Have fun!
