Milk Art

Alex is really into science and experiments lately so Ive been searching the web for some cool age appropriate projects for him to try out. I came across this neat experiment from flutter flutter which required only a few ingredients we happened to have on hand


Food Coloring

Dish Soap

Begin by pouring a bit of milk into a dish

Let the kidlets go crazy with food coloring

So pretty

Next add a few drops of dish soap

Sit back and watch the "art show". The dish soap reacts to the fat in the milk creating a beautiful show before your eyes. Add more soap to keep it going

 Enjoy! and thanks for stopping by


  1. What a great idea! Finally, a good use for milk!
