April does bring showers and while we have waiting with baited breath for sun, we get rain.....But we have fun anyway! The kiddo was asking to do something fun, so I grabbed some shaving cream (I keep cans from the dollar store for other activities), some food coloring and a glass container.
We talked very briefly about how rain happens. Basically that the water is like the air, and the shaving cream is like the clouds. And as the clouds fill up with water (food coloring), they produce rain.
We added some food coloring to some water.
Starting with the blue, because you know....rain, we used a pipette to start adding food coloring (water) to the shaving cream (cloud).
The kiddo was pretty excited to see the "rain" start pouring into the glass. I was impressed with how well he handled the pipette. :)
Of course we can't just stop at one color, we added red as well and had a little Purple Rain. LOL. I hope you try this super simple experiment with your littles. Let me know how it goes.
Here is where you can find where I am popping up next!
