This week we have had snow then rain and one thing led to another and we were talking about evaporation and such. I love a visual so we did a little science. First we put water into clear cups. This was our puddle. As the puddle evaporated it formed a cloud. Made out of shaving cream.
Blue food coloring was added to the shaving cream to represent the water that had evaporated into the cloud.
Then the cloud burst and down came the rain!
Simple, fun and educational! When Conner's mom came he was excited to show her what we had done. I loved listening to him explain it to her! Makes all the effort worth it. Megan is already asking what experiment we are doing tomorrow. Looks like will need to plan these more often.
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
