How Clouds Make Rain

A cloud is where the rain comes from. A cloud is water in the air (water that we can see). When the weather is hot, water on the Earth becomes vapour (like the vapour coming out of a kettle when the water in it boils). This vapour rises in the air. Since up in the air it is colder, the vapour turns back into drops of water (ice). These drops of water in the air stick together and form clouds. When the clouds get full of water, the water falls back to the ground as rain.

Science Experiment: Making Rain

Materials needed:

  • Glass jar
  • Shaving foam
  • Water
  • Food Colouring


Before you start the experiment, explain to you child that:

  • Water is the air
  • The shaving foam is the cloud
  • The food colouring is the rain



Make predictions before the activity and talk about what is happening while you are doing the experiment with your child.

  • Half fill a jar or a glass with water.
  • Put some shaving foam on top of the water.
  • Finally with a pipette or teaspoon put some droplets of food colouring. 
    • Watch carefully as the droplets fall from the clouds (shaving foam) into the air (water) down below

An alphabet rainbow is used when teaching children the alphabet. It is a good visual aid, and helps children consolidate letter recognition and alphabet order.

Above is a picture of the alphabet rainbow we have in kindergarten classes. At school we say the letters of the alphabet every day.

Press on the link below and print the alphabet arc shown above.  Say the letter sounds while pointing to the letters. This will help reinforce letter recognition and alphabet sequence. Focus on vowels (the letters in red) and consonants (the letters in black).  Spend at least 10 min daily saying the alphabet.

Magazine Letter Hunt and Sort Activity

This letter hunt and sort activity is a perfect activity for your children since it helps them develop scissor skills while consolidating letter recognition.

Choose the letter you will be hunting for, e.g. g.  Encourage your child to find the letter g from old books and magazines. Cut these letters and paste them on a handout.  Sort the higher case letters from the lower case letters
