Disappearing Ants

Young children enjoy learning about how things work. They love experimenting with the physical properties of objects to understand how they function.

By participating in activities that foster this experimentation, your little ones are learning important critical thinking and observation skills.

These activities not only promote their inherent curiosity about the things around them but foster the pure joy of cause and effect.

For this activity, we experimented with food coloring to create disappearing ants! Using eye droppers, students dropped red food coloring onto a white piece of paper.

These papers were spotted with ants drawn with white crayons. As they dropped their dye, they saw “red” ants mysteriously appear!
