Color Explosion!

Materials Needed:
Wide Mouthed Jar (we used a pickle jar)
Oil
water
food coloring
tooth pick or skewer

Directions:
1. Fill the jar with water around 1/2 to 3/4 of the way
2. Pour a thin layer of oil on top about a 1/2 inch thick
3. Take food coloring and squeeze a few little droplets on top of the oil
4. Take your toothpick or skewer and push the food coloring through the oil as soon as it breaks through the oil layer it will explode into the water
5. Make sure you use standard food coloring (it is water soluble) you do not want to use a lipid (fat) based dye (cake dyes) they will dissolve in the oil which defeats the purpose of this fun experiment.
