Fireworks in a glass!

  2. Pour a small amount of oil into another container and add a few drops of food colouring.
  3. Give it a good stir, if it doesn’t mix, add a bit of water.
  4. Pour the food colouring and oil mixture into the warm water and watch the fireworks!

I have uploaded a sheet for you to record the experiment (if you cant print then use this and help and write your own.)   I have also uploaded a helpsheet to make sure you understand what each title means.
