I know this activity isn’t very Christmas-y in nature, but I wanted to share it because my kids had SO MUCH FUN with it. Making this “tornado” is basically free and makes a good little science lesson!

What You Need:

2 two-liter pop bottles
Duct tape

What to Do:

Fill one of the two-liter bottles about 3/4 full with water.

Line up the opening of the empty bottle with the water-filled bottle and tape around the openings tightly with duct tape.

Quickly turn the bottle over so that the water-filled bottle drains into the empty bottle, swirling it around right after you turn it, kind-of like stirring a cauldron (sorry, I couldn’t think of another analogy). Watch as the water creates a tornado between the two bottles!

Will even got the hang of it after awhile. Leah had some help from Dad.

Check out the looks on my kids’ faces–priceless!

 Will and Leah wanted to repeat this activity over…and over…and over again. Finally the bottles started leaking through the tape so I snuck it into the recycling. Have fun!
