Cool Science, Quick Crafts

overview

this project is super simple and smells amazing!

30 minutes

maker checklist

  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (makes 12 oz)
  • peppermint oil
  • food coloring
  • mixing bowls + spoons
  • rubber spatula (helpful)
  • lidded container (6-12 oz)
  • round gloss label + sharpies
  • lots of paper towels!

instructions

1

combine the sugar and melted coconut oil. mix well.

add 3 drops of peppermint oil, and stir until combined.

4

separate mixture into smaller portions (2 to 4 is great) in individual bowls, so you can color them separately. save some white for layering too!

tip!

go one drop at a time! lighter food coloring (like yellow) needs more drops to show, while a darker color (like blue) needs much less.

5

layer the colors artfully in a  jar. add a label to decorate with sharpies.
