No snow, but lots of rain the past 2 days! Since the outside is so dreary, we decided to brighten things up inside with some shaving cream and food coloring rain clouds.

  1. Get materials ready: food coloring/water; large vases filled 2/3 fill with water; shaving cream.  
  2. Using a dropper or syringe, drop food coloring-water mixture on top of the shaving cream. 
  3. Watch your “clouds” produce colorful rain!  Some Things we learned: be patient or you get a dark storm cloud, as the colors drop quickly.  The longer you wait, the slower they drop and less they mix. Experiment with different sized vases and tops to see which works best (hint: mason jar not the best).
