Science on a Tuesday Afternoon

This didn't take more than fifteen minutes, but it was a fun activity that Peter really enjoyed.

First, we sprinkled salt all over the ice cubes and listened to the crackling sounds. What do you think is making those sounds?

Then we got out the food coloring and watched the drops spread out in cool patterns.

We finished things up with some science talk in kid language {so helpful}. Yay. Now mommy understands too. :)

Thank you to 5OrangePotatoes for the idea.
