I'm pretty sure, that if you are using Pinterest, you are finding amazing project though out the year, that you never get to, so I went through mine and choose,

Rainbows
Harry Potter
New England States

For my blog, this summer.

Tonight (after a shopping trip to Target), I sat the boys down and we attempted to make a rainbow jar.

To  Prep:

 
This project requires quite a few things but most of it is probably stuff you already have lying around your house.  You’ll need:
I introduced density by explaining that different liquids have different weights.  
Instructions:
  Purple - mix 1/2 cup corn syrup with 1 drop blue and 1 drop red food coloring.  Pour into jar.
Blue - slowly pour 1/2 cup of blue dish soap down the side of your jar.
 
Green - mix 1/2 cup water with 2 drops green food coloring.  Tip your jar and slowly pour the water down the side of the jar.
 
Yellow - slowly pour 1/2 cup olive oil down the side of the jar.
 
Red - mix 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol with 2 drops red food coloring.  Tip your jar and slowly pour the alcohol down the side of the jar. (this did not mix well, I read on the comments, taht you need to use a dropper)
