Exciting Tornado Experiment

Kids are always curious about the weather. They often ask why it rains, or why are there different shapes of clouds. As parents, you can help nurture the inner scientist in your kids by performing science activities with them. This time, we’ll be having the tornado experiment using some of your kitchen equipment.

Science Activity for Kids: Tornado Experiment

What you will need: Mason jar, water, and dish soap.

Use mason jars to make your own tornado experiment! Who would’ve thought that you can place an enormous natural disaster in a jar? Your mini scientist will have a blast with this hands-on experiment.

Step 1: Fill the jar with water. You can use a glass jar for your tornado experiment. If possible, use those medium-sized jars in your home.


Step 2: Add some dish soap to the jar. You can use any type of dish soap as long as it’ll produces bubbles.
