Let’s start the week by creating a storm!
You'll need: a large jar or similar, shaving foam, pipette or eye dropper (or just use small drops from a spoon), food colouring, 1 or more small cups
Mix up some food colouring with water in your small cup(s) - create as many cups of coloured water as you'd like. Fill the large jar about 3/4 full with water. Right before you're about to do the experiment, top the jar with shaving cream until it's just above the rim - this will be your cloud. From there, keep dropping coloured water on top of the shaving cream and keep an eye on what's happening below. When the shaving cream cloud gets too heavy, the colours will start to seep through like rain, just like what happens with real clouds!
Don’t forget to send your teacher photos of your storm!
