  1. Fill your empty jar with water

  2. Add shaving foam to the top to look like a big fluffy cloud

  3. Using your syringe filled with blue colouring , have your child add drops to the cloud

  4. Watch - As the blue gets heavier and heavier it will start to fall out of the clouds and make rain
