Hi! I’m sorry for my absence the last couple of weeks. We’ve had a lot going on around here, so I haven’t had a chance to post. We still have two weeks left of summer, but Sola has recently entered a phase where she wants to do experiments all the time. By this, she really means that she wants to mix random things together to make a concoction, especially if it involves food coloring. This has been proving to be quite messy, so this week, I decided to try do some more structured science experiments that allow her to mix as she wanted to do, but still somewhat contained her mess.
The first experiment that we did was called the Color Changing Milk Experiment. I first read about it several years ago. I found a good set of instructions on Steve Spangler’s website. The only change we made was that I just had Sola drop a blob of dish soap right from the bottle in the milk, instead of using a cotton swab. Apologies for the blurry video, my phone couldn’t focus on the milk very well).
