With the threat of rain this morning, I thought, why not review what we learned about rain a couple of weeks ago? (This is when I realized that I didn’t post our first rain activity, when I thought I had..oops!)
I got out the supplies we’d need for our new rain craft. Paper, glue, cotton balls, paintbrush, and a small bowl of water.
First, we glued down the cotton balls to the top of the paper. Insta-clouds!
Next, we talked about what clouds were made of, and how rain happens. I then asked Tobi to make rain. I had expected him to just paint water onto the paper below the cotton balls, but he surprised me.
Instead, he painted water ONTO the cotton balls. Then he told me they were ready to rain. He got them really wet, then pulled one off and made it drip all over the page. Smart cookie!
Annie had fun with this as well. She always is up for playing with glue, and she enjoyed squishing the cotton balls into the water.
This is why we homeschool! Awesome Fun!
