Fill a large clear drinking glass,
deep bowl or vase with cold water almost to the top, leaving room for a layer
of oil at the surface.
Pour in just enough oil to
create a thin layer, about 2-3 tablespoons, depending on how large your chosen
vessel is. Allow all of the oil to float
to the surface, completely separating from the water.
Add a few drops of food
colouring to the surface. Try different
colours and watch as they sink and burst into little colour explosions! A very gentle swirl of the water with a
skewer can add to the fun!
Once your colours have all
mixed together, pour it out and try it again.
This craft is quick and easy to do over and over and will amaze kids!
