Cloud in a Bottle

Make a cloud in a bottle in an easy water activity that takes two steps. Whether it's a rainy or sunny day, kids can bring a part of the sky inside.

What You'll Need:

  • Empty soda bottle
  • Candle
  • Matches

How to Make a Cloud in a Bottle:

Step 1: Hold a narrow-mouthed bottle over a candle flame for a few seconds. Then blow out the candle.

Step 2: Wipe the rim of the bottle and quickly blow into it. The warm moisture in your breath will condense and turn into a "cloud" in the bottle.
