The Cloud in a Jar Science Experiment!

Share this:

One of the best things about homeschooling is being able to do so many fun projects! I’ll also thank Pinterest for this gift as well. When I was in school, we did baking soda and vinegar in a volcano and that was the coolest thing ever! And now?! Now I know how to make weather in a jar! And it’s freaking cool!!!


It’s also soooo easy! If you’d like to do this with your kids (or pets, or by yourself because it’s that awesome), all you’ll need is:

  • a glass jar with a lid
  • ice
  • boiling water
  • hairspray

Pour the boiling water into the jar. Spray some hairspray in the jar before you add the lid. Place ice cubes on top of the lid and watch the magic happen!

Why the hairspray? Because it gives the water vapor a surface to condense on to.Thi

Man I love science! Is this cool or what?!? Now…if I can only make it lightning in a jar without burning the house down. Hummm…. #goals

Tag me on Instagram if you try this one yourself! And thanks for stopping by!
