Raincloud Experiment

In the book Stick and Stone, Stone finds himself lost in a rainstorm while searching for his friend, so this week we’re experimenting with rainclouds!


  1. Glass cup or vase
  2. Shaving Cream
  3. Food coloring
  4. 3 small cups with about 1 oz of water in each
  5. 3 Droppers


  1. Fill your glass cup almost to the top with water
  2. Spray shaving cream on the top to create the cloud
  3. Mix a few drops of food coloring into each cup of water (so you have 3 colors)
  4. Use a dropper (we didn’t, but we wish we did!), to put drops of colored water on the cloud
  5. Watch the cloud to start raining!
