This project is great for kids of any age.

What you need: Baby food jar, baby oil, water, food coloring, any small object that will fit in the jar and is able to move around.

What to do:

1. Fill the jar 1/2 way with water.

2. Add 1 or 2 drops of food color. (more for darker-less for lighter)

3. Put your small object inside. (It should float)

4. Fill the rest of the jar with baby oil. (Fill as much as possible to prevent air pockets)

5. Close jar and flip over. ENJOY!
