Munchkin Monday: Cloud in a Cup Science Experiment

My daughter and I love doing science experiments together! And thanks to Pinterest we have a gazillion great ideas at our fingertips. This one is super easy and it has the potential to be very educational (depending on how in depth you want to discuss cloud formation and precipitation with your kids.) While I wouldn't say its a very accurate representation of rain, it is still fun!

Squirt shaving cream in a glass of water. This is your cloud!
Squirt food coloring on top of the clouds.
Then watch it rain!
