Magic Milk is a Must Try Classic Science Activity
Magic milk is a cool science experiment to try!
Step 1: Pour a small amount of milk into a shallow container.
Put drops of food coloring all around the milk. Get creative! You can even add cookie cutters to a shallow bowl for some extra fun like we did for this different magic milk experiment.
Step: 3 Touch the q-tip to the surface of the milk. My son tended to plunge his q-tip into the milk.
Step 3: Watch the magic of the magic milk!
Simple Science Behind Magic Milk for Young Kids.
There’s a terrific chemical reaction going on here between the soap and the milk’s fat. I checked out Steve Spangler to learn more. Milk is made up of vitamins, minerals, proteins and fats. When the soap is added to the milk is breaks apart the protein and the fats. The soap heads for the fats creating the cool bursting of color. When there is no more movement, all the fat molecules have been found. Are there any more hiding? Try another q-tip dipped in soap!
An awesome, easy classic science experiment for kids and grown ups!
My husband had just as much fun with this magic milk experiment as my son did.
