Science Project for Kids – Magic Rainbows

It’s time to take the journey and experience the magic! Time to return to the greatest legend ever!

It’s been such an honor to have been asked to work with Clarius Entertainment to help promote the upcoming movie, Legends of Oz: Dorothy Returns. Only a couple more days til this 3D musical feature film will be in theaters.

I wish this movie would have been around when my son was small. Finding a movie that both kids and parents can equally enjoy together can be a rare find.

You’ll need:

  • Vegetable oil – 1 tablespoon

Fill your jar almost to the top with regular tap water.

Place 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a small measuring cup.

Mix the food coloring with the oil using a fork.Science Project for Kids - Magic Rainbows|

SLOWLY pour the oil mixture into the water and WATCH!Science Project for Kids - Magic Rainbows|

If your rainbow is slow to form, gently touch the droplets of food coloring with the fork.

“Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return” – a 3D animated musical feature film in theaters May 9th, 2014

Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is a 3D-animated musical based on the adventure books by Roger Stanton Baum, the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum. A continuation of one of the world’s most popular and beloved fairy tales, Legends of Oz finds Dorothy (Lea Michele) waking to post-tornado Kansas, only to be whisked back to Oz to try to save her old friends the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Lion (Jim Belushi), the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer) and Glinda (Bernadette Peters) from a devious new villain, the Jester (Martin Short). Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), China Princess (Megan Hilty) and Tugg the tugboat (Patrick Stewart) join Dorothy on her latest magical journey through the colorful landscape of Oz to restore order and happiness to Emerald City. Set to the tunes of Academy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Bryan Adams, Legends of Oz marks a charming, family-friendly return to the Oz franchise.
