Make A Cloud - We Made That46K+Do your kids ever ask you how a cloud is made? My oldest asks me that a lot, and although I can explain it to her I thought it would be a LOT more fun to let her make a cloud. That is why we decided to try this experiment. One of the coolest things about this experiment is that you can actually see the cloud building up in the jar and then when you take the lid off you can touch it. What is happening with this experiment? Check out our SCIENCE board on Pintrest for more Experiments! Supplies Jar With Lid Warm Water (should be steaming a little but not boiling) Ice Match Directions Pour warm water in the bottom of your jar. Light a match and throw into jar then replace lid. Watch the cloud form, and how it moves in a circular pattern in the jar. Open the Jar and let your cloud free! As the cloud is leaving the jar you can touch it to see what it feels like.
Water Cycle in a BagActivity for ages 3 to 7. I’m always on the lookout for simple, fun kids’ science activities so when I ran across this water cycle in a bag I couldn’t wait to give it a try. It was a quick prep activity that had a big payoff – my boys watched the water do its thing for days. I hope you love this water cycle in a bag too. P.S. Getting Ready I grabbed a Ziploc sandwich bag from our pantry and used a black Sharpie to draw a sun, cloud and water. Water Cycle in a Bag Big Brother carefully unscrewed the lid to the food coloring and squeezed four big drops into the water. Then Middle Brother slowly poured the now blue water into the Ziploc while Big Brother held it open for him. Big Brother ran his fingers along the seal several times to make sure it was closed tight and then passed the bag over to me so that I could give it a double check. We used tape to hang the bag on the window and then sat back and watched it work. The Science Behind It Find More Malia Hollowell
