Just Add Milk Science + Art Kit


Just Add Milk by Griddly Games, Inc.This Christmas gift idea, the Griddly Games ‘Just add Milk’ science + art kit, has been recognized as the winner of “Dr. Toy’s Best Vacation Children’s Products Award”. It not only fosters creativity in children but also enhances their cognitive abilities. Just add Milk promotes an interest in science while encouraging artistic experimentation.

The Just Add Milk kit comes with simple and clear instructions. It contains 4 bottles of food coloring, 1 bottle of liquid soap, and 5 sheets of heavy paper. In addition to the provided materials, milk, a shallow dish, and a toothpick or straw are needed to complete the activities.

The instructions specify that around 1/4 cup of milk is necessary, but it seems that this amount may vary depending on the number of experiments or craft projects you intend to undertake.

To begin, pour a thin layer of milk into a shallow dish, ensuring it is approximately 1cm deep. It is recommended to use a clear dish as per the instructions.

Next, carefully add a few drops of each food color to the milk.

Then, place a drop of soap onto the surface of the milk.

At this point, something magical occurs as the dish transforms into a whirlwind of vibrant colors.

The reaction when the soap comes into contact with the milk is truly astonishing. The colors start to swirl and create a mesmerizing display of tie-dyed enchantment.

Why does this happen you ask?

The phenomenon responsible for the captivating colors in this experiment is known as surface tension. Surface tension refers to the inherent property of liquids to minimize their surface area by forming a cohesive layer. Initially, surface tension holds the milk molecules together, but when soap is introduced, it creates a disruption in the bonds that hold the proteins and fats in the milk. As the soap interacts with the milk fats, the proteins and fats undergo bending and twisting motions. Amidst this dynamic molecular dance, the food coloring is propelled in various directions, revealing the otherwise imperceptible chemical reaction taking place.

This Just Add Milk kit serves as an extraordinary tool to introduce children to the wonders of science and basic chemistry. As someone who has always been passionate about science, I am delighted to see my daughter following in my footsteps and developing an interest in scientific exploration.

Art creation: After the chemical reaction, a stunning dish of swirling colors is produced. Place the thick paper on top of the liquid, allowing the food coloring to adhere to it. Remove any excess liquid from the paper and then lay it flat to dry.

You can utilize this kit to make lovely picture frames, mouse pads, and more. For a more customized craft, use a toothpick or straw to swirl the colors. Dip your chosen item into the liquid after swirling it to add color.

The options are limitless with the ‘Just Add Milk’ science and art kit by Griddly Games.

We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent playing, crafting, and exploring with this kit. I strongly suggest this kit for any child who has a passion for art or science.

Even though we have already made numerous stunning creations, we still have an abundance of food coloring and soap to keep on crafting.
