This is a very simple, easy kids science experiment. All you need are household products including: milk, a bowl, food colouring, q-tips, and any type of dish soap will work. Enjoy! Please support your local Autism Society!
How the milk affects the Food colours with soap.
- Milk (recommend 2% milk).
- A bowl
- Food colouring
- any tpye of dish soap (recommend Dawn).
- Step 1 : Fill the bowl with milk than wait all the bubbles to go.
- Step 2 : Put alot of food colouring in the middle.
- Step 3 : Take a q-tips and put into soap than put it in the middle of the bowl for 15 seconds.
- Step 4 : Watch the food colouring expand on surface of the milk.
Milk contains protein and tiny amounts of fat in it. Both fat and proteins are very sensitive to chemical changes. The chemicals in the dish soap weaken the chemical bonds that hold the protein together in the milk solution. The food coloring allows us to visibly see the changes in the protein molecules. Also, the soap molecules cause the fat in the milk to mix and swirl until the fat has been distributed across the entire amount of milk.
