A Tornado in a Jar

I know I already did a blog on sensory jars, but these are a little bit different.  This is a tornado in a jar.  It was a pretty cool project, and since school is coming up, it would also be a good experiment to try out for the school year.  The only real issue in it is the amount of bubbles from the dish soap.

My HTC does not take good pictures, but we did do a video on this project, and they did work.

The things you will need:

  • A jar with a lid
  • water
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp dish soap
  • Glitter
  • Food coloring

You fill the jars 3/4 of the way with water.  Add the vinegar and dish soap.  Add some glitter and food coloring, if you want it, and then shake the jar.  There will be a little tornado.

It is a simple, fun project.  Sam even made one for Lizzie with me after we finished.  They had so much fun.

Don’t forget to grab a tee!
