Make Colored Clouds and Rain

​What you'll need:

Clear jar or plastic container

Water (any temperature)

Shaving cream

Cup of water with a little food coloring

Pipette (or spoon)

Food coloring



1. Fill jar about 3/4 full with water

2. Spray shaving cream to cover top of water completely.

3. Drip water on top of the shaving cream using pipette.

4. Drip food coloring on top of the shaving cream.


Pink tip:

As you pour or drip the water over the shaving cream cloud, the water will start to break through just a little bit. As the water breaks through add the food coloring to the shaving cream drop by drop to observe how the accumulation of water molecules  (food coloring) creates precipitation (rain).
