STEM With Allie
Each and every month, Allie will be joining Chelsie for a fun and exciting STEM project that is as fun for parents as it is for children!
In our very first episode, Chelsie explains how to make DIY Clouds In A Jar -- how cool is that?
Will you try making a cloud in a jar? Let us know in the comments below!
How To Make A DIY Cloud In A Jar:
Here's what you'll need:
- A jar with a lid. It can be a brand new mason jar for the craft store or even a clean jar that was once used for pickles!
- 1/3 of a cup of hot water - be careful!
- About a handful of ice
- Aerosol hairspray
Here's what to do:
- Carefully pour your hot water into your empty jar.
- Swirl it around to warm up the sides of the jar.
- Take your lid and turn it upside down, then put it on top of the jar.
- Take about 3-4 ice cubes and place them onto the lid.
- Allow the ice to sit on the lid for 20 seconds (count to twenty out loud!)
- Remove the lid and the ice, and spray your hairspray into the jar of water.
- Quickly place the lid with the ice cubes back on top.
- Watch closely as a cloud begins to form!
- When you see that your cloud is getting bigger, take the lid back off and watch as your cloud floats out of the jar.
How cool was that?
