Making our own Rainbows
6 plastic cups (clear)
1 large clear container
food coloring (all the colors of the rainbow)
1. Fill the large container half full of water. This is our AIR. Explain that we can't see the air, but it's always there.
2. Put shaving cream on top of the water, covering it. This is the CLOUDS.
3. Now it's time to make the colors of our rainbow. In each clear cup, fill it about half full will water. Then add each rainbow color. If you have to mix to make colors, talk about it.
4. Take an eye dropper and slowly add each color to the cloud/air mix. The clouds will eventually soak up the "rain" and it will make a rainbow. Talk about how that happens with weather too. Once the clouds soak up enough water they can't hold it any longer and it rains. Our rain is just colored like a rainbow.
