Red cabbage painting experiment


Shred some red cabbage and boil it in a small amount of water for 30 mins. Strain the amazing purple juice and then paint it onto your paper!


add some lemon juice


bleach (bathroom cleaner)


milk (actually the dregs of the whey in the natural yoghurt)


bi carb (you can dilute it first or sprinkle on as powder like we did)


drops of vinegar


other suggestions to try were water, toothpaste, citric acid, cola, washing up liquid, laundry liquid.

Here is a link for a similar experiment that my friend Meg from a hopeful nature sent me which explains what is going on.

Have a look on my Pintrest Science experiment board for my inspiration and other ideas.
