Make Your Own Rainbow

make-your-own-rainbowWhat person would not want to see the beauty of a rainbow in close proximity. Well now you can make your own rainbows at home.


  • A Glass of Water (2/3rds full)
  • Some White Plain Paper
  • Some Sunny Rays

This experiment is really simple. All you need to do is take the glass of water and paper to a place where there is plenty of sunlight. Then all you need to do is hold the glass above the paper and watch the sun produce different colours and a rainbow will appear on the white paper. Try holding it at different levels and see if that makes any differences.

Get even better at it and you could be the envy of your friends at school when you show the teacher how to make a rainbow too.
