My kids have been interested in the weather lately. We have been looking out the window, talking about what we see, guessing by looking outside whether it is cold/warm, windy/calm and such. We’re learning about making predictions and the actual out come when we go out to play.
I saw this pin one day and knew I had to try it with the kids, even if they weren’t interested, just because I wanted to try it.
Start with a jar, I used plastic as the kids were handling it and I didn’t want to risk broken glass. Fill it 2/3 of the way full.
Add a squirt of dish soap. I used different amounts in each of the containers… you can see some others I made up in the background. I used Sunlight… I doubt it makes a difference what type it is.
Swirl it around a bit and there you have it. A tornado.
The kids loved it. Mind you, there was a bit of water spillage as I used peanut butter and chocolate spread containers instead of those made for liquids.
