Welch's Grape Juice Blog Tour
I was delighted when I found out that I had been selected to participate in the MomCentral Welch's "Paint It Purple" blog tour. For one I have loved Welch's grape juice since I was a young teen-age girl. I can remember going to band camp and we were several hours away from home the one thing I found and looked forward to each day was the delicious Welch's grape juice that was chilled and ready to drink at every meal and after the hours of practice in the hot sun. As refreshing and delicious as it was then it still is. We received two (2) 10oz. samples and were rather happy to see them come in the mail I enjoyed them with my husband we toasted each other and then that delicious flavor of the grape juice that I loved as a teen I enjoyed again. I then had to allow my children each a taste and they are very much like me and loved it as well. Now there is grape juice then there is Welch's grape juice. In my opinion Welch's stands out and above them all. Not only a trusted brand but a trusted taste that I can share with others.
Welch's Family Vine Tool. The tool allows you to create a health issue that you can share with doctors, your own children, as well as anyone who would need to know. One great aspect of this tool is that it can be updated.
We were to come up with a few ideas to "Paint It Purple" and so I thought about it and began to think about some homeschool lessons that me and my kids did together. I hope you enjoy a couple of science experiments and a delicious drink recipe.
Test for Base or Acid
Welch's grape juice
•A stirring spoon
•Jars or glasses
In Give her some grape juice in two jars or glasses. The goal is to experiment to see if she can make the purple grape juice change color. While it may be like a chemical reaction the truth is it is a chemical reaction. Pour a little lemon juice into one of the glasses filled with grape juice.The lemon juice is an acid red.The grape juice is called an indicator because it will indicate (or tell) whether another liquid is an acid. Next, add two spoons of baking soda to the second glass or jar of grape juice. This time the grape juice should turn green. The baking soda is the opposite of an acid. It is what is known as a base. A base will change the color of an indicator from blue to green. Now, see what happens if you add some baking soda to the red liquid (the grape juice and lemon juice). It should change back to purple
Invisible Ink is made by mixing half teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate with 30 ml of water.Now using the combination use it to write something on a plain paper. Allow it to dry where you can not tell anything has been done to the paper. Now use Welch's grape juice to paint the paper. You should be able to tell what you have written in the paper.
To continue along on the science route Welch's has developed a site all about Grape Science
Scoop some vanilla ice cream into a milkshake glass. If you want to try a low or nonfat version, freeze 8 ounces of milk in an ice cube tray. Pour some ice-cold Welch's grape juice over the ice cream. For the alternative, add the grape juice to the blender with the frozen milk cubes and a teaspoon of vanilla and blend till smooth. Stir briefly and add a straw. Serve at once. It will be tart and slushy and full of vitamins--perfect for a hot and humid afternoon.
