A Science Experiment

Sydney and I have so been enjoying our Kiwi Crate subscription.  Every month a box laden with art supplies arrives on our doorstep with instructions on how to do two or three different projects.

We made these Weebly Wobblers a while back with the contents of January's science themed kit.

And this afternoon we pulled out the other half of the kit which was a science experiment using test tubes, vegetable oil, water and food colouring.

We filled the test tubes three quarters full with water then topped them off with oil.  Then Sydney dropped in both blue and yellow food colouring to see what happened.

She thought it was very cool that the oil sat on top of the water and that the food colouring drops were suspended in the oil.

After making a few observations we tilted the test tube side to side to see what would happen.

And then shook it like crazy!  It turned a beautiful, bright green!

What a fun experiment, can't wait to see what next month's Kiwi Crate holds!
