You’ve got to try this! All you need is: milk, food coloring, cotton swab, & rubbing alcohol!

Activity: Float or Sink

A found an empty water bottle & wanted to put stuff in it.  She started with a rock & then wanted to add water,  so we did.  Which of course lead to the discussion of,  “what happened” & “why”.  (It sunk & because it is small).  Which lead to other objects being put in & making guesses as to what would happen.   
It was fun watching them make guesses,  usually based on what happened before.  Then they started shaking it,  which lead to observations & discussions about was happening.   Fun,  impromptu exploring life! 

SKILLS: Observations, Predictions, Float/Sink.
