Nervous Colours

This was a crazy experiment. It was amazing to see the colours run like they did.

What you need:

a bowl of milk, at room temperature
food colouring
toothpick
washing up detergent

Add milk to a bowl and let it sit until it is at room temperature
Then drop in dots of different food colours.
Dip the toothpick into some washing up detergent and touch it into the centre of the milk.
The colours fly away from the stick to the sides of the bowl. Next, re dipped the toothpick into the washing up detergent and then put it into the colours.
They ended up pouring a heap of washing up detergent into the milk and mixing it all up which made the milk turn to an army green colour.
