colorful explosions activity, this science activity was the next favorite. We called it our "rainbow colors" since it was so colorful.
Materials: clear container, water, shaving cream, and liquid food color(s)
To start, fill up a clear container (we used the shoebox size Rubbermaid containers and small Tupperware containers) almost to the top with water. Then on top of the water spray a layer of shaving cream.
Then drip a few drops of food coloring on top of the shaving cream.
The food coloring will seep through the shaving cream at different rates. When the food coloring reaches the water it sinks and then starts to spread out.
It is fun to watch as more colors start mixing into the water.
This one was like a tornado as it mixed in the water. We had put the food coloring on the side of the container.
After awhile the colors mixed all together, but it was fun (and pretty) to watch.
