How do clouds rain? We used shaving cream and water to do an experiment. We used an eyedropper to drop water into the clouds (shaving cream). We watched the rain fall to the bottom of the bowl!
For this Invitation to Create, children experimented with creating differently shaped clouds by using puffy paint, watered down paint, and a paintbrush. During this process, children were able to explore the effects of mixing paint with water, using shaving cream and discover how the consistency can change.
I made cloud dough for them to play with, it was so soft but VERY messy! This was a mix of conditioner and corn starch.
They used cotton balls to fill in the letter C; C for cloud.
They took turns rolling a pocket cube, identified the number and placed that many clouds on the mat.
For fine motor, they traced or drew lines in their journals!
