  • Start by filling the small containers with water. The less water you use, the faster your “rain” will drop. The more water you use, the more rain you’ll be able to make. So keep that in mind as you fill up the containers.

  • Use the eye dropper,  syringe, or small spoon to drop the different colors of water onto the shaving cream cloud. HINT: The closer you squirt to the edges of the shaving cream, the faster it will go through the shaving cream and come down as rain.
