  • Marble Milk Painting

    First Place Bushey - December 2018

    The children in Jupiter have been carrying out lots of experiments this month. One of the experiments they did was called marble milk painting. The children poured oat milk onto a tray and using the pipette they dropped food colouring of their choice into the milk. Using white paper, they laid the paper inside the tray whilst mixing it gently around the tray. The children then held their paper up and could see the marble effect picture they had each made.

    The children worked together to measure how much paper was needed to wrap their presents and to cut the paper and sellotape accordingly.
