Homemade bubbles

Make colored sand art by stirring a chalk stick in a bowl of salt...it changes the color. Stir less for light color and more for dark richer color.

A little science...This would fascinate kids. Rainbow roses, you can do this by splitting the stems into strands and placing each one in food colouring the roses draw the liquid colouring into the petals, amazing! And that was my science fair project in middle school! :)

OOBLECK. This stuff is amazing. Mix 2 cups of cornstarch and 1 cup water in a bowl. To color oobleck, add a few drops of food coloring to the water before adding to the cornstarch. Takes some effort to mix the water and cornstarch. Oobleck defies Newton’s third law of motion–for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. If you quickly smack oobleck with your hand it immediately turns into a solid, instead of splashing or moving. If you slowly move oobleck it reacts like a liquid.

Make Watercolor Paints - baking soda, vinegar, light corn syrup, corn starch, and food coloring. It will be ready to use in a couple of days. (Must dry first.)
