Raising Dragons: Oil and Water Art

This activity is a beautiful combination of science and art.

Our friend Lucy started with a plate of vegetable oil and water colored with food coloring. She then used a small pipette to add drops of water to the oil. It was fascinating to see the small drops float and the larger drop sink. Because oil and water don’t mix, most of the drops stay separate making for this beautiful creation!
