To Make Magic Milk, you will need:

  • Milk (must be either whole or 2%)
  • Food Coloring (the more colors the better!)
  • Dish Soap

  1. Poor milk into the shallow dish or bowl until it covers the bottom.
  2. Add a few (3-4) drops of food coloring to the bowl. Do this with each color.
  3. Add a drop of dish soap to the middle of the milk.
  4. Watch the colors dance around!
  5. Experiment with other materials and colors!
