Rainbow in a Jar

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!

  2. I'm stealing this for summer camp! :)
    I do a similar experiment but it's with sugar solutions of different concentrations. Each solution is dyed a different color and the students have to figure out how to make a rainbow - if they get it wrong the colors mix and they have to start all over. This is nicer for younger kids b/c the liquids are not miscible if the rainbow is made properly.
