In this project, we mix art 🎨 and a little science 👩🔬 for some colorful fun.
Have you ever tried mixing water and oil together? What happens? In this project we combine these two liquids to understand how they mix (or don’t mix), and we create some unique art in the process.
What you’ll need for this project:
- A small tray (with a lip)
- A cup of water
- Kitchen oil (vegetable oil, canola oil, or olive oil)
- Food coloring or liquid watercolor
- A straw or eye dropper
- A sheet of thick paper
When you’re done with the water & oil project, we’d love to see it! Send us a picture of your completed art piece at firstname.lastname@example.org, upload to social media using #VirtualBGCBFC, or comment below!
