7 fun weather experiments to do at home with free ebook

Recently, we have had fun doing weather experiments at home, which all came about because of the crazy thunderstorms that we had been having. I figured if my son could ‘see’ what was happening when we have a thunderstorm he would have a better understanding of it all. This led to several other experiments, some that worked better than others.

I wrote up the instructions for each one, along with what you need, what to do and space for the child (or you) to draw/write their observations. You could encourage the child to draw their own cover or find pictures from magazines to make one.

A good way to check a child’s understanding is to ask them to explain what happened to someone else, a older sibling or a friend or relative. I usually blog about what we have been up to over on my personal blog and Ebi-kun’s grandparents read it. Then the next time we have a video chat it gives them something to talk about, my mom has got ready good at asking the right kind of leading questions to get Ebi-kun talking about his latest project.

Here is the first experiment fro the free ebook, pop your name and address in the box below to get the rest of them.

How to make a thunderstorm in your kitchen

And it’s not as dangerous as it sounds! It is actually an experiment to see how the warm and cold fronts interact. We have been having some cracking thunderstorms recently so this was a great little experiment to do.
Fill a clear container about 2/3 full with lukewarm water.
Let it sit for a minute or two.
Then add a blue ice-cube at one end of the container and a few drops of red food colour at the other end. Watch what happens.

The blue water should sink, pushing the red water up.

Looking from the side of the box gives a better view, the purple, mixed water is where the thunderstorm would take place, the purple shows the unstable air.

It is a pretty neat experiment because trying to explain this concept to a child is quite difficult, with the water they can see exactly how the air moves. When you do this though, explain that there are not going to be any big bangs and flashes of lightning!

    Thank you for this, I bookmarked it and only just got to do it as we are now doing a weather study unit. Declan loved it, he really liked putting down his findings in his ‘report’ and then reported back to daddy when he had finished them all. I hope you do more fun packs like this!
