Cloud Science


Lovely little hands-on cloud science experiment by 'The Happy Housewife'
http://thehappyhousewife.com/homeschool/summer-cloud-science/#_a5y_p=2121528
We happened to have the two ingredients necessary, so set up was simple.

~shaving foam
~(blue) food colouring


We learned that a thin layer of foam is all that is needed for the effect.
Once your food colouring pools on the foam, it gets heavy enough to drop from the foam/ 'cloud' into the water/'sky' leaving everyone mesmerized by it's graceful movement!


Even the view from above, has an element of interest.


Baby C is busy explaining to us that the drips are falling!
She was particularly animated when becoming a scientist;)
