Oil and Water Experiments

Mercedes and I experimented with oil, water and food coloring today. Simple, easy, fun.

Supplies: glass cups
                oil
                water
                food coloring
                spoon for stirring

For the first project I just poured food coloring into a cup of oil and let Mercedes stir it around. The food coloring stayed in little droplets no matter how much Mercedes mixed it. She kept trying to catch them with her spoon.




For the second project, we mixed half a cup of water with food coloring and poured oil on top to watch it separate.
