'Little Cloud' by Eric Carle
We've been doing a lot of playing with clouds recently, since Vin is so in love with 'Little Cloud' by Eric Carle at the moment. While I was sick a couple of weeks ago I put together a little felt board for him to re-tell the story...

Here Little Cloud changes into a bunny and a hat and what appears to be a turtle (but is really a sheep)

'then all the clouds became one big cloud and... rained'

Re-telling stories is a great exercise in memory and comprehension as well as a pre-reading skill. Acting out stories with puppets or props, drawing pictures or putting together a sensory tub inspired by a favourite book are some of our favourite ways to play. You can check out our other Exploring the Story playtimes and I pin over at this great collaborative board - Child's Book Related Crafts & Activities.

  4. We love The Little Cloud ever since we saw a stage show version of it and The Hungry Caterpillar. It was amazing. I've just got into making felt boards so will definitely be trying this one out.
