Little Cloud By Eric Carle
This book is so wonderful. I love the simple story. The pictures are easy to recognize and your little ones will love following the adventures of this little cloud. There are so many activities you can do that go with this book.
Playdough or Shaving Cream Clouds
This activity can be accomplished in two different ways. It depends on what you have on hand, and how messy you want to get with your child. I made a simple hill, grass, sky and sun background scene placemat. I then laminated them, so they can now be use for many different projects. You can even use them for snack, or other craft activities and then just wipe them down when you are done. Making your own placemats are so easy, and you can get really creative with them. The point of this project is to let your child make clouds either with shaving cream or white playdough. You can get out cookie cutters or just leave it up to there imaginations. This activity is fun and is a great sensory activity.
This is a fun way to track the weather. I like to take my daughter outside everyday and ask her what the weather is like. We sing a fun little song, and we figure out what the weather is like. She really likes it. We then run inside and mark our weather chart. So simple and lots of fun.
Weather Song: (to the tune of london bridges)
