Create your own rain at home
All you need are a few items from around the house and you can create your own rain.
* Large pot
* Large bowl
* Hot plate
* Ice cubes
STEP 1: Fill the large pot half the way with water, turn the hot plate on high, and place the large pot with water on the hot plate.
STEP 2: Fill the large bowl with the ice cubes.
STEP 3: Once the water starts boiling, hold the large bowl with ice cubes over the large pot of boiling water. Explanation
The bowl of ice cubes causes the moisture in the rising warm air to condense and form rain.
