I came across this book while browsing through the library and thought it would be a great little activity to try!
Here is what you will need......
.....plus a spoon, measuring cup, and a large mason jar or glass cylinder that can accommodate 2 1/2 cups of liquid.
Purple - mix 1/2 cup corn syrup with 1 drop blue and 1 drop red food coloring. Pour into jar.
Blue - slowly pour 1/2 cup of blue dish soap down the side of your jar.
Green - mix 1/2 cup water with 2 drops green food coloring. Tip your jar and slowly pour the water down the side of the jar.
Yellow - slowly pour 1/2 cup olive oil down the side of the jar.
Red - mix 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol with 2 drops red food coloring. Tip your jar and slowly pour the alcohol down the side of the jar.
Here is the finished product!!!
This is a great little science lesson on the density of different liquids and on how some liquids don't mix (water and oil layers). This book has easy, kid-friendly pictures, instructions, and explanations.
Have fun making your own liquid RAINBOW!
