How to Stack Liquids in a Rainbow of Layers: A Fun Kid Science Project

Do your kids like to stack blocks into tall, gravity-defying towers?

Ever try to stack liquids without letting them mix?

It’s easy and oh-so-cool! You just need a little chemistry know-how and a steady hand.

In this article I’ll show you how you and your kids can stack seven liquids into a rainbow of layers, one on top of the other, without mixing them.

It looks like magic, but it’s not—it’s science!

Learn how you and your kids can stack liquids (7 of them) with different densities into a rainbow of layers, one on top of the other, without mixing them.

Why Stack Liquids?

It’s important to teach kids basic scientific concepts so they’ll understand how the world around them works.

When you make it fun or exciting or even jaw-droppingly awesome, you capture kids’ attention, pique their curiosity and make them want to learn more.

Stacking liquids achieves all three. And when you do it together with your kids, you make it an adventure!
