Oily mixtures

Oily mixtures

Kids just love science and not knowing what will happen next. Create that sense of mystery with the kids and get them to do some experimenting with you.

What you need:

  • vinegar
  • olive oil
  • clean jar

Number of players:


Put three tablespoons of vinegar to three tablespoons of olive oil into a clean jar.

You should notice that oil floats on top of the vinegar.

Screw the lid on the jar and shake the substance about 20 seconds.

Notice the change in the mixture.

Leave the mixture for a few minutes.

The liquids should separate and the layers should reappear again. Why? Oil and vinegar don't mix!
