Creating your own rainstorm...this is so cool! All you need is a clear container, water, shaving cream, food coloring and droppers. Have kids make predictions by drawing what they see and think will happen.

Shaving Cream Rain Clouds

These shaving cream rain clouds were a fun, easy and beautiful activity to do with kids. Watch as the "rain" falls down from the clouds!

Recycling plastic caps into a classroom project- in this case, creating beautiful strings of 'raindrops' out of caps that normally end up in the trash.

: Fill the cup with water. Put shaving cream on top for a cloud. Explain that when clouds get really heavy with water, it rains! Then put blue food coloring on top of the cloud, and watch it rain. Kids love experiments!


Science Sparks

Create a lung

Tornado in a Bottle: I think it’d be fun to also experiment with different sizes of bottles to see which make the best tornadoes! You could also try adding some food coloring, glitter, grass, or little objects like Monopoly houses to the water/soap mix for some additional experimentation! Okay, so there you have it, a really fun science toy! :)
