We mix two packages of instant chocolate pudding. The children help add the “dirt” (pudding mix) and “rain” (milk) to make “mud.” The children help mix the mud with a spoon. I give each child two Oreos in a ziplock bag to crush to make some extra dirt. Each child places a gummi worm in a cup, adds the pudding “mud” and the crushed “dirt”.
Use a paint brush dipped in blue paint and "Splat" it over the paper. (You can also tap the brush on a ruler to make the paint splatter on the paper)
WET CHALK DRAWINGS:
Use black paper, or a dark color paper. Have children dip colored chalk in a sugar water and color with the chalk. The sugar water makes the chalk colors more vibrant.
Thursday - Wind
PAPER BAG KITES:
Use lunch size paper bags, decorate. Add streamers to the bottom of the bag. Attach a string to the open end. Children can run outside with them to see how the wind fills the bags.
Start with a square piece of paper. Let children color or paint the paper. Cut from the corners, in about 2/3 and fold the four corners into the middle. Put a tack through the center and stick it into a pencil eraser. Blow on it, or see the wind blow and turn it.
