Looking for a creative activity for the kids, but don’t want to clean up an abominable mess – or spend a fortune on supplies? We’ve got an easy activity
that the kids will love, using products you’ve (most likely) already got sitting in your cupboard. It’s a little bit science-y, a little bit crafty,
and very Instagram-worthy.
What you’ll need:
Milk is made up of water, vitamins, minerals and fat. When the dishwashing liquid enters the dish, it has a chemical reaction which causes the fat to start to break down. The dishwashing liquid is essentially ‘chasing’ the fat around in an attempt to get to it, which we can see because of the food colouring. Eventually, all of the fat molecules will break down and the dishwashing liquid will have no effect in the mixture.
