Tornado in a can

What you will need

  • Quart jar
  • Water
  • Dish washing soap
  • Blue food coloring
  • Tin foil (optional)

How to make it

Fill the jar almost all the way up with water, add some blue food coloring for the sky, and put in a drop of dish washing soap (if you get too much soap it will get cloudy and you won't be able to see the tornado). If you want to, you can put in a few wads of tin foil for houses and trees. Now your tornado is ready! Put the lid on, set the jar on a flat surface, shake in a fast circular motion, and watch the tornado rip around in the jar!
