Shaving Cream Rain Cloud

I am always trying to expose Babs to some toddler friendly science. The shaving cream rain cloud turned out to be more entertaining for her than I thought it would be. Let’s face it…..that’s always a plus! 🙂


First you need a glass bowl or cup filled with water. Then squirt some shaving cream on top. Next give your little one some food coloring and help them add some drops to the top of the shaving cream. The amount of food coloring you need will depend on the amount of shaving cream you used.


It takes a little time but the food coloring will gather at the base of your shaving cream cloud and drip into the water. The result was fascinating to Babs! We ran out of blue so our rain cloud was multi-colored.


Materials Needed:

Shaving cream
Glass bowl or cup
Food coloring
One excited toddler!
