Wesley did this experiment at school and was dieing to show it to me and his sisters. I was actually with one of my tutor students and I knew his experiment involved milk, food coloring, a Q-tip and soap. Now with my 5, 3, and 1 year olds I kind of wanted to be involved with the implementing of the experiment. But, he couldn't wait. and i have to admit I was pleasantly surprised at how well they did it without making a big mess. But you pour a little milk on a paper plate and then drop the food coloring in different places in the milk. Then you take the Q-tip and dip it in the dish soap and then touch the tip to each color. as the colors explode away from the soap they make really quite beautiful "images". So we took pictures. I had to post them all because I really couldn't pick a favorite. Needless to say I was very impressed with my little scientists.
