We wrote a secret message for our friends from a different class with candles, and they can discover our message by painting over it with water colours!
An an extension of our feather experiment, we added colour droplets first to water, and it immediately changed colour to match the added drops. Then, the same procedure was done in oil, and the colours remained in the form that they were added. The children were incredibly engaged in this activity, it was so great to see!
The oil in their feathers resists water, allowing for it to just trickle off when they are finished swimming!
