Fireworks experiment

Hooray, it’s Bonfire Night! While the big displays have been cancelled, there’s still lots you can do to celebrate at home. ⠀

To create your own indoor fireworks display (and investigate surface tension at the same time), you just need some full fat milk, gel-based food colouring, a cotton bud, some liquid soap and a plate. Oh, and a willing helper and Whizz Pop Bang’s ‘Fireworks on a plate’ instructions, of course! Here’s what you need to do – keep scrolling to download a PDF of this activity.
