Science Project for Kids Magic Rainbows
This Science Project for Kids Magic Rainbows is kitchen science at it’s best! So perfect when you need a quick indoor activity for kids! This is great for a variety of ages.
A while ago I worked with a sponsor for the new Legends of Oz Movie and I created a couple of fun DIY kids crafts within that theme.
Lather up some fun with my Tattoo Soaps that I shared a couple of weeks ago, or channel Wiser the OWL for this fun science project that creates a magical rainbow just like the one Glinda waves from her magic wand.
How to Make Making Magic Rainbows
- Vegetable oil – 1 tablespoon
- Water – enough to fill your jar half way
- food coloring – Red, Blue and Yellow. No need for green.
How To Make Magic Rainbows
- Fill your jar almost to the top with regular tap water.
- Place 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a small measuring cup.
- Drop one drop of Red, Blue and Yellow food coloring into the oil. No need for green. Trust me. It just makes a green rainbow and we all know rainbows have more than just green.
- Mix the food coloring with the oil using a fork.
SLOWLY pour the oil mixture into the water and WATCH!
If your rainbow is slow to form, gently touch the droplets of food coloring with the fork.
