Summer fun Day 41! Weather experiment.

Hi friends!! Today is day 41, and I couldn't wait to try this fun weather experiment out, that I found on pinterest! Our family seems to always be talking about the weather. We moved from Arizona to Northern California a few years ago, and even though people here complain about how hot it is.....we know this isn't as hot as Arizona! We love to compare the temperatures! We also love to rave about the RAIN! Az rarely gets rain, so we absolutely love all the rain we get here. This weather experiment was so much fun for the kids!

All you need is a glass of water, shaving cream (you all know how much my family loves to play with shaving cream!) and food coloring.

All you need to do is fill the glass up with water (leave a bit of space at the top). Spray on a bunch of shaving cream, to create your cloud, and then put a couple drops of food coloring on the top of your cloud.

Now watch as your cloud fills up with the food coloring and begins to rain!! It's awesome! We did this 4 times, and the kids were so excited each time the clouds began to rain. It was a neat way to explain how it rains, to the younger kids.

When we were done, we decided to use the rest of the shaving cream outside, in one of our sleds.....I swear its the best way to keep stuff like that in one place. The kids loved playing with it, and then they decided to add water to it, which was lots of fun too!

We had a fun filled day here in our house! I hope you all had a great day, full of smiles!!!
