Have you ever wanted to make milk dance? Try this fun easy experiment with the kids. Follow the instructions below.

Materials Needed:
Milk
Dish Soap
Q-Tips
Food Coloring
Small Bowl or Shallow Dish
Small Bowl

Step One: Fill a small bowl with milk. You do not need a lot of milk for the experiment to work. Also fill a small bowl with dish soap.

Step Two: Drop at least 2 drops of each color of food coloring into the milk.

Step Three: Dip the Q-tip into the dish soap. Make sure to use a generous amount of soap. Now dip the Q-tip into the milk next to a drop of color. The color will burst out. Repeat this step next to the other colors.

As more dish soap that is added to the milk the colors will stop bursting, but if you look closely the colors move around or dance in the milk.

Science behind it: When the dish soap is added to the milk the fat molecules begin to break up. The soap molecules are moving around trying to bond to the fat and the food color is being pushed around during this process.
