Making Rain

Pinterest has opened my eyes to so many fun things that I can do cheaply and easily with the kids. To explain how clouds get heavy and rain falls, we did this neat little experiment.

First, put some water in the bottom of a glass then put shaving cream on top.

Next, use food coloring to make the "cloud" heavy.......

Then watch it "rain", in color.
Happy and fun learning. Just the way we like it.
What happens when the "cloud" won't "rain" and fingers are used to help things along. It helps to drip the food coloring down the side of the glass instead of the middle;)

Go make it rain and sing some songs about rain. I'm partial to songs by Adele, Bruno Mars and Milli Vanilli.
