Language and communication LC39- The older toddler participates in conversations. Milk and food coloring experiment. Place milk in a round pie tin then add drops of food coloring to it, spacing them out. Dip the q-tips in dish soap and have the children dip it into the milk. The food coloring will swirl and move! This is a great activity during which you can ask many open ended questions! "What colors are we using", "What do you think is going to happen"
