Watch the video above to see Julie making blue play dough.      

Does it stretch?  Is it sticky?  Can you twist it?  How does the play dough change if you add more flour or more hair conditioner?

Ok, so it's called a red cabbage, and it looks a bit purple - but the water it makes is blue!   

Watch the video above to see how Julie makes this very special blue water that changes colour when other ingredients are added to it. 

Can you make blue water and create some exciting colour changes?  Can you match the colour you make to this chart below?  Scientists use charts like this to work out how acidic or alkaline a liquid is.
