Liquid Density Experiment * ages 4+ ⋆ Raising Dragons

Liquid Density Experiment 💦ages 4+ 💦 This is a classic, kitchen, science experiment and one we had been wanting to try! It’s such a great way to teach kids about the difference in densities of various liquids. I tried to select liquids of different colors for added effect and to top it all off we added some solid objects in the end that settled in at various layers of our creation based on their weight.  So cool!

OPTIONAL ITEMS (We added these at the end.  You can use them or find similar items around the house to use and experiment with.)

  • Marble
  • Cherry Tomato
  • Plastic beads
  • Ping Pong Ball


Add the ingredients to an empty, clear container IN THIS ORDER:

  1. HoneyLiquid Density Experiment
  2. Corn syrup Liquid Density Experiment
  3. Dish soap Liquid Density Experiment
  4. Water (dyed red for effect) Liquid Density Experiment
  5. Vegetable oil Liquid Density Experiment
  6. Rubbing alcohol (dyed green for effect) Liquid Density Experiment

After all fluids were added, we dropped in a marble, a cherry tomato, plastic beads and a ping pong ball. It was so cool to see the objects float in the various layers based on their weights and densities.

At the end, Nate tried to mix the liquids but they still stayed pretty separate!

Note: For us, the dish soap and water mixed a bit so we probably could’ve left one out.

Check out Nate doing the liquid density experiment in the below video:
