We love to do simple activities that require household materials. These types of activities take a few minutes to set up and provide at least an hour or more fun for kids. The Colorful Milk Experiment is a great example of one of those activities. There is a ton of learning in doing this experiment as well.
Our first time doing the Colorful Milk Experiment, we were amazed at the results. My son was three at the time, and talked about the results for a week. Back then we called this activity the Milk Rainbow. You will need the following for this activity…
This experiment teaches kids how soap attaches to grease, which in this case would be the fat in the milk. Mixing the milk, soap, and food coloring results in a beautiful mixture of colors. We encourage you to try it with a variety of colors.
Below is a video showing you how to do the experiment. It comes from my son’s YouTube channel, Corban’s Fun Learning Adventures. Please subscribe if you like what you see on the channel.
