Solution or Mixture Science Experiment

Max learned about solutions and mixtures at school today. He needed to come home and do an experiment or two of course that turned into many but what fun!

Maggie stirring the food color and water solution
Max stirring the red food coloring solution.

I think one is salt or sugar, then milk, and oil. There was also the seeds from some plant outside and dirt.

And obligatory cute Maggie photo..... Can you tell that pink is her favorite color?

Max was so excited to come home and conduct this experiment. Maggie was so excited to help her older brother. Then they wanted to play with the water table that degenerated into them throwing water on each other. Good times. I think their clothes are still outside. But before they got completely wet, they did the float or sink experiment with a few things. No pictures of that though.

I do love this time when science is so fun and exciting and tactile. I like that this was something that they could do all on their own.
