Galaxy Magic Milk Experiment
Galaxy Magic Milk Supplies
Shallow dish (we used a pie plate)
Small dish (just big enough to hold some dish soap)
Milk (try a variety of different fat content milks and creams to see how it affects your reactions)
Dish Soap (we used Dawn)
Food Colouring (ensure it is liquid food colouring, we used a variety of blues and purples and a bit of yellow)
For this project you will need a white plate, skittles, and water. This is a quick, easy, budget friendly science experiment that demonstrates water stratification, and it's just pretty cool. Send us a photo of your masterpiece! We'd love to see how yours came out!
This short video will not only teach you how to make a lava lamp using household items, but will teach you a bit about science as well!
