wpid-IMG_20140113_190117_707.jpgMaking your very own tornado in a bottle is very simple and good for nearly any child to assist.

First: Find an eager scientist.  Goggles and lab apron optional.








You will need a de-labeled soda bottle (with a cap), dish soap, glitter and a faucet.

Add two tiny drops of soap.








A healthy dash of glitter.


Shake in circles.

Instant Tornado!


For additional floor safety consider super gluing the bottle shut.
