How to Make a Cloud Easy Science Project for Kids

In this fun Science Project for kids you will make your own cloud!  This Science project is easy to do and is great for young elementary school children.  It only requires a few materials and doesn’t take long to do.  Try this cloud maker experiment today.  Don’t forget to check out Cloud Facts for Kids to go along with your experiment.
Materials: crushed ice, salt, medium cap and small cap
  1. Have kids fill large cup 1/2 way with the crushed ice.
  2. Add 1/3 cup salt
  3. Put the smaller cup into the middle of the larger cup (try not to touch the ice with your fingers)
  4. Blow into the small cup
  5. You will start to see a small cloud
Pretty cool! The cloud is formed because your breath contains water vapor, a gas.  When the vapor hits the cold air in the smaller cap it turns from a gas to a liquid forming tiny drops of water this makes the cloud form.
