Magic in Your Kitchen
Have you ever had your children tag along in the kitchen while you are cooking or cleaning, and wondered...how can I keep them entertained and occupied while I am busy?
Moms, dads, and caregivers, never fear! Science is here!! Behold...Magic Milk!!!
What will you need: 1. Milk 2. A bowl 3. Food Coloring 4. Cotton Swabs 5. Some dish soap
First, pour some milk into the bowl
Second, squeeze a few drops of different colors as you like
Third, take a cotton swab and dab the dish soap
Last, carefully lower the cotton swab so it brushes against the surface of the milk
What can we teach our children when they play:
-Sequencing: Can you retell the steps of this experiment?
-Quantity: How much is enough? Is it too much or too little?
-Time: What do you do first? What is next?
-Numbers: how many drops of blue did you put in?
-Colors: What color do you want?
-Cause-and-Effect: What happened? Why did it happen?
-Making Predictions: What do you think would happen if you did the same thing again?
Next time your kids are running after each other in the kitchen, or complaining how boring it is on a rainy day, whip out some milk and show them some cool science! Have a blast!! #preschool #science #magicmilk #speechwithinreachslp #parents #resources
