    Has anyone ever tried Magic milk- its great fun all you have to do is half fill a large shallow tray with milk (any will do) add washing up liquid to it (brand washing up liquid such as fairy gives the best froth) then add different colour food colourings the washing up liquid and the milk mix together to create colourful patterns…… the kids loved watching the colours moving about :-) try it

  • I have “Exploding Colors” in my book, Science Arts, which is the same thing. Love love that project!! Glad you mentioned it.
