Milk Art

This is such a clever idea, and an activity that doesn't require buying something at the store. Most people have milk and food coloring on hand. Found this idea over at Sandy Toes and Popsicles
All you need is:
a toothpick
plate or shallow dish
liquid food coloring drops
We used coconut milk to make ours, but i think by using different milk it can make the colors come out looking different. You could try a heavy cream or a low fat milk. Just add drops of the food coloring and swirl the food coloring around slowly. It is kind of mesmerizing to watch the colors float around in the milk! Hudson and I both enjoyed this craft! :)


  1. Add drops of dishwashing soap to see some action!

  2. Once you get a pattern you like, you can carefully lay a sheet of paper on it to pull up the print. Note: some papers need to be moistened frist.


I'd love to hear from you!
