Amen sharing his Hulk juice!

The Heart of Science- a home school lesson

Help your kids celebrate Valentines Day without the candy and it can still be sweetest day ever!

So how in the world do you combine science and Valentine’s Day? With a love potion of course! My children had a ball helping their dad and I make Hearts Day a blast. With a small investment of $3.00 and 3 minutes it was done!

Bubbles of cool mystifying air.

Here are the four steps to making your very on signature Love Potion.

1. Buy dry ice. We purchased 2 lbs from the local market.

2. Gather food coloring. You can use regular food dye, Kool-aid, or any thing of the like. One of my sons like the Hulk, so we had to get him green. Since it was Valentines day, we also used red. The girls insisted on it- they are so mushy! 🙂

3. Take out a couple of glass containers. We used different sizes, including mason jars. (make sure they are clean) Fill them 3/4 water.

4. Safely combine a ice cube size of dry ice to the colored liquid of each glass and watch the magic! Your children will LOVE it!

Here’s the video- It was mysteriously amazing! Click here!

Enjoy! If you bring this amazingly simple, yet exciting science project to your children, come back and let me know how it goes.
