Science Experiments & Cooking!

Last week, we did both a science experiment and a "cooking" project.
First was the experiment. We made colors spread and mix in milk by adding dish soap. We needed milk, food colors, and liquid soap: 

I had each of the kids pour milk onto to plate....

add drops of food coloring into the milk....

then add a drop or two of liquid soap.

The colors are supposed to dramatically move and mix, but that didn't really happen. So we decided to use a different soap.

We thought that using a different soap might help, but that didn't make to much of a difference. So the kids decided we needed to use paper plates instead.

That did work!

That spreading and mixing happened in a matter of seconds and was really fun to watch. It was also fun to listen to the kids come up with reasons on why it wasn't working and coming up with solutions. :0)

Our cooking project didn't actually involve cooking, but it was still yummy!! We made frozen berry yogurt. We needed a bag of frozen berries, 1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt, 3 tablespoons of honey, and juice of one lemon.

First we poured the frozen berries into the food processor:

Poured the yogurt in...

added the honey.....

and squeezed the juice from the lemon in.

We turned the food processor on and waited for the mixture to be smooth and creamy!


The kids loved this and want to make it again soon!
