Cloud Jars

Using paper towels, eye droppers, and blue water, we explored the exciting science behind cloud and rain formation! Using the eye droppers, we dropped blue water onto the paper towels. As the towel became saturated, the “rain” began to pour inside the jar! Sensory and discovery activities offer a means to introduce scientific concepts to young children.

As they engage in the activity, they are practicing what they are learning. The actions they take part in allow them to experience a concept. As we were doing this activity, your little one was encouraged to talk about what they saw and what they were doing.

Doing this enables their understanding of the physical and mental processes they are experiencing and provides them with the vocabulary to describe it.
