Kids Bored? Create a Rainbow. Boredom Busters:Part Two

The Holidays are Over.  Now What?

The holidays came and went and the shininess of all the new toys and books your child received is beginning to wear off.  What on earth do we do now? In the second installment of our two-part series, we introduce you to an easy-to-do science experiment that is sure to inspire awe in your family.

Make a Rainbow

What you will need:

  • 6 clear same-sized glasses (I used mason jars)

  • Red, Yellow, and Blue food coloring

  • Water

  • 6 paper towels rolled into a tube shape

  • Optional: ruler and timer

Fill three of the glasses three-quarters full of water. Color the water in one glass red, one glass blue, and one glass yellow. Place all six glasses in a circle, alternating water glasses with empty glasses.

Place a paper towel between the glass with blue water and an empty glass, then connect that empty glass to the water glass next to it. Repeat until all of the glasses are connected by a paper towel to the glasses on each side of it. Take a peek at the photo provided. 

Now make some predictions about what will happen. Write them down if you like then wait. 

What happens next? Please go to Scottsdale Mom's Collective to find out.
