The best thing about science for kids is that it can transform the simplest of everyday objects into something spectacular! In this Color Surge Salt and Ice Experiment, you'll take ice, salt, and a little bit of liquid watercolors to create a science experiment and art project all in one! You can use this easy experiment as a learning opportunity to show and tell your kids why ice makes the salt melt. Being able to observe the salt and ice interact is a fantastic way for young kids to learn. But, hands down, the best part about this vibrant science and art hybrid is the addition of liquid watercolors. These will not only highlight the grooves created by the salt, but they will also create a beautifully colored ice dome that will fascinate your kids again and again!
