Mud Pies
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”.


RAIN PAINTING
:
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.



PINWHEELS:

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.
