Science Fun: DIY Rain Cloud Experiment
Is your little one curious about clouds and rain? Learn more about the weather with this easy and educational science activity for kids. Using just a few common household items, you and your child can create a “rain cloud” in your own home!
Clear cup or glass
Fill a clear cup with water.
Add a layer of shaving cream.
Add several drops of food coloring.
When the cloud gets too heavy, the drops fall through as rain! Explain to your child that when water droplets grow heavy in the sky, gravity pulls them down from the clouds as rain, just like in the experiment.
