**This giveaway has ended. See below for the winner.**
I was contacted at the beginning of summer to see if I'd like to review the new book, Martha Stewart's Favorite Crafts for Kids, and as y'all know of my love for a.) my kids b.) Martha Stewart and c.) crafting well of course I was all, 'heck ya, baby! We are always on the look out for some fun crafting ideas this summer' :-)
I gotta tell ya that I really love this book. It is right up my alley and just perfect if you happen to have children...grandchildren...maybe teach children...or even babysit children! Hello! It's the perfect summer accessory!
I have been dying to get some fun duck tape and now I have the perfect reason to go hog wild in that section on my next trip to my local craft store, yee-haw!
Let's make some fireworks, shall we?
1 tbsp cooking oil (vegetable, canola, olive, etc)
1 clear, glass jar
water to fill jar
liquid food coloring
First place one tablespoon of oil to a small bowl. Then add a few drops of food coloring and mix it into the oil with a fork. It'll look like the picture above on the right!
Then pour the oil/food coloring mixture into the jar of water and watch as streams of food coloring fall into the water. Neat, huh?
The reason this works is because food coloring is water-soluble meaning it cannot dissolve in oil, only water. When you first pour the mixture into the water, the food coloring is trapped in the oil. Eventually it will sink once it makes contact with the water and dissolves.
I love when crafting and science meet!
