Make "Fireworks" In a Glass of Water

Oil and Water Fireworks
Supplies:
  • 1 Tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 drops red food coloring
  • 2 drops blue food coloring
  • clear glass
  • water

Drop the red food coloring and blue food coloring onto the cooking oil and  stir until there are drops of color spread throughout the oil. (Do NOT combine the colors. Drop them separately into the oil.) Pour this into a clear glass which has been filled with water and watch what happens.

This activity is a great way to
introduce the concepts of density
 and color mixing to your children.
