While we were playing with our Cloud Sensory Tub earlier this week, I decided we should actually do some proper learning and find out how clouds actually work. I've seen this idea on a couple of places but I think it was on this Cloud Unit on Living Montessori Now first.
I set out a bowl of cotton balls, one with some water and one empty bowl - Vin dipped the cotton balls into the water to absorb, then squeezed the water out to make rain - he was soo into this! It was kinda funny watching his little 'sqquuueeeze' face as he made sure all the rain came out.
We have one or two more cloud playtimes up our sleeves so watch this space, in the meantime check out the linky for more weather themed inspiration!
