Rain Cloud Experiment

Why does it rain? Conduct a simple experiment to show your preschoolers a visual representation of the rain concept.

1. Pour water in a tall, transparent container or jar.


2. Squeeze shaving foam.


3. Add food colour.


Observe as the streaks of food colour drops to the bottom of the container. Let the children know that the shaving cream is the cloud and the food colour is the rain… when the cloud turns dark or grey, it will rain!
