Google+ Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas: Spring Weather - RAIN!

Spring Weather - RAIN!

This week we are focusing on Spring weather and since we just finished our Rainbow Theme it felt fitting to begin with RAIN!

Books:














Week Long Activity - Weather Journal

The Lil Divas are busy studying keeping a journal of the daily weather all week long. I made a simple printable and stapled it into a file folder so that it looks like a book/journal.

Each day the Lil Divas decide what the weather is like and cut out the corresponding picture. They glue it into the correct day and write the word that goes with their picture. I have the words sunny, windy, cloudy and rainy written on index cards with picture clues as part of our Word List for this week.



Craft: Rainy Day Pictures

 What We Used:
White Cardstock Paper
Blue Paint
Green Paint
Cotton Balls
Glue
Silver Glitter Paint
Gold Glitter Paint
Blue Glitter Glue Pen

What We Did:
I told the Lil Divas we were going to make a picture of a rainy day so they set out to make scenery.

The Oldest Diva opted for a sky only picture so she began by painting the entire sheet blue (sky)


The Youngest Diva painted some grass and a blue sky backdrop


Then we added cotton ball clouds


 We used Silver Glitter Paint to make them look grey & stromy

 We added some rain, using blue glitter glue pens to make rain drops, and some lightning - I cut them out & the Lil Divas painted them with gold glitter paint and added them where they wanted.


 Alphabet Review Game

I used umbrella shaped calendar cut outs and then cut out raindrops from blue construction paper to make this simple Alphabet game.

I wrote the upper case letters of the alphabet on the umbrellas and the lower case letters of the alphabet on the raindrops

 I mixed up all the pieces and placed the umbrella pieces down where the Lil Divas could view them

 I put the raindrops faced down and they took turns turning over the pieces and then matching them to the correct umbrella


Stay tuned for more Rainy Day fun!
