Making a paper clip float
We made a paper clip float! We first checked out that the paper clilp didnt float when we put it in water. Then we gently laid some tissue paper on the surface of the water and put the paper clip on top of that. Once the water had formed a ‘skin’, we used the end of a paintbrush to gently push the paper into the water without touching the paper clip. Once it got wet, the tissue paper started to sink so we could then remove it from the bowl. The paper clip stayed floating thanks to surface tension! An easy, quick one that amazed the boys!
