  • A clear cup or jar
  • Water
  • Oil – any kind will work!

  1. Fill your cup 3/4 of the way with some H20.  That’s the chemical formula for water in case you didn’t know!
  2. Now grab the oil and fill up the rest. Be careful not to make a mess.
  3. Add 3-4 drops of food coloring to the mix, and bombs away!
