Warm & Cold Water Color Science Experiment #2

 Our second science experiment from the Big Bag of Science is Warm and Color Water Colors!

We pulled out 2 test tubes, the tube rack, and color dissolving tablets.  Then poured warm water into one of the test tubes and cold water into the other test tube.  The experiment is to find out which tablet will dissolve faster - warm or cold water?!

The verdict: warm water

Little guy had so much fun with this experiment we had to do it AGAIN! :)

science is fun!

can we do it again?!

Then for fun, I pulled out a baster I bought at a dollar store and had him practice fine motor skills by suctioning up the water and putting it back into the cups we poured from.  And of course we did this again and again... here is a video!


Have fun and Be a Blessing!
