Science Sparks - Colourful Milk Display & Magic Balloon

We never got around to doing last weeks Science Sparks experiment for one reason or another so this week, with Hanna off school with Chicken Pox, it was an ideal opportunity to double up and do two experiments at once. Jack couldn't make it but we had a guest appearance from Spiderman instead.

The Colourful milk display involves dropping food colouring into whole milk and adding washing up liquid but if you want to know about the Science involved then you'd better go and see Kerry at Multiple Mummy where she explains it perfectly! Spiderman was a little heavy handed with the washing up liquid but I think we still achieved the same effect.

Next we tried the 'Magic Balloon' using an empty bottle, some vinegar, bicarb of soda and a balloon. It didn't quite go to plan at first, but just like the volcano once we'd added more vinegar it did what it was supposed to do. Again if you want to read the Science part then head over to Emma at Mummy Mummy Mum! where she will explain.

    she refused to be in front of the camera due to the pox - her words were 'don't put me on the Internet!'.......she said it like I was going to sell her!!

    I really think us scientists should dress as superheros more often! A brilliant attempt! Love it. x
