Nifty Science Experiment in the nick of time! : D

Thanks to yet another blog I scored mondo Momma points at bedtime tonight!! I'd had in mind I would do a science experiment with the kids but the day surged on without me!! Happily this one is super easy, super fast and SUPER COOL!!! :D The children were thrilled and amazed and we performed it again and again! :D The idea is to use two glasses of water, one hot and one cold. Add a couple of drops of food coloring to each and ... OBSERVE!!! The molecules in the hot water are moving faster, so the coloring is absorbed more fully and quickly. The molecules in the cold water are moving sloooowly so the food coloring swirls about in a most mystifying manner! SEE those molecules move!! ;D
