Summer fun with Science

June 25, 2009

So my children came home with this list  just before school  was out.. and I found this interesting  and wanted to share with you..

1. Leonardo  Da  Salty‚Ķ

* you will need*

Warm water, Salt, Q-tips, Plain Paper, Food Coloring, Several small containers

*What to do*

Mix the warm water  and the salt together into as many containers as you have food coloring. Add a different  food color to each container and mix well. Use your Q-tips or paint  brushes to paint a picture.. Put it on thick so that when it dries it will show up well.. Let the painted paper sit for several hours until it is completely dry.

*What Happened*

The Salt and the Food Coloring both dissolve in the warm water when mixed together. However , as the water evaporates, the salt and the colors remain on the page to create a picture.

2. Homemade Bubbles                           bubles

* you will need*

2 Tablespoons dishwashing liquid,  A cup of Warm Water

*what to do*

Mix your dishwashing liquid and warm water * hint* add a little sugar to make your bubbles last longer.( The bubbles burst when they dry out and the sugar slows  down the evaporation)
