Milk Art | Kids Craft

thought it would be fun to go outside and enjoy the last of the warm weather. we sat outside on the grass and did Milk Art. so simple….but super cool. i even found myself addicted to it.

all you need is:
• milk
• a toothpick
• plate or shallow dish
• liquid food coloring drops

then, pour the milk in the plate. scatter a few drops of food coloring in the milk. let the kiddies take a toothpick and let the colors begin! very slowly swirl the milk around. beautiful swirls of color will appear.

let the kiddies try different variations of colors & different swirling motions. try adding more milk. try adding cream. try non-fat verses whole milk. every which way causes a different reaction. it’s mesmerizing.

happy swirling!

since we were using food coloring, i did this activity outside. but we have done it inside too. just be careful, food coloring stains, so take the necessary precautions.

    If you put the milk in a glass pie plate, drop on a few drops of food coloring,(a few different colors in various places scattered around) then put just a drop of food coloring on the rim of the plate to let it flow into the milk – as soon as the detergent hits the milk, the colors explode into movement all on their own. Try it! You’ll like it!!!!
