Rain, rain, go away…or in this case don’t! This fun little science experiment is super simple and only uses a few ingredients. All you need is a glass or jar, water, dropper, shaving cream, and food coloring.
Here’s what to do::
- Pour water into the glass, leaving about an inch from the rim.
- Carefully add a layer of shaving cream (representing a cloud) to the water (the atmosphere). Be sure not to make it too thick or you’ll find you’re having to wait a long time for the magic to begin.
- Add a few drops of blue food coloring to the shaving cream.
- Fill the dropper with water and squeeze little droplets over the cloud. This will look just like streaks of rain falling!
For a bit more fun add different food colorings and make rainbow rain.
