School was cancelled today due to flooding in Houston and surrounding areas. So we entertained ourselves with a little fun and easy science experiment to explain rain falling from the clouds. The experiment was really quite mesmerizing and all you need is shaving cream, food coloring, and a jar of water. Check it out.
The best thing about doing this experiment with a 6 year old is that she busted out into song when it started “raining”. Then promptly says, “Hey, let’s make lightening in jar!” and I say nervously, “That would be hard to do!”
Enjoy this easy experiment and stay safe Houston friends!
