• Clear cup or vase • Shaving cream • Blue food coloring • Dropper

Directions:

1. Fill the vase ¾ full of water. 2: Fill rest of the vase with white foamy shaving cream.

3: Mix a separate bowl of water and food coloring. Using a dropper, start adding the colored water to the shaving cream. 4: Watch the cloud hold the colored water until it becomes too heavy and the colored water starts to rain!

Why are clouds white? The small water droplets that make up the cloud scatter the light and appear white to our eye. The sunrise, sunset and shadows can give the clouds a pink or orange hue too.
