31 Days of Books: Little Cloud

This cute little board book came home in Lydia's preschool bag one week and we really had a lot of fun reading it.  Little Cloud goes off on his own and has many adventures, including changing into a variety of shapes.  In the end, he joins the others and together they rain.

This is a fairly simple craft and can easily be included in a water cycle unit.  We cut out a basic cloud shape from light construction paper.  Have your child draw a face and then glue cotton balls to cover the cloud.  Add some yarn and put water dropplets on the end.  Finally add a piece of yarn from the top to hang it from the ceiling.  

There's your little cloud.  I think he's kind of cute.

How can you teach your child about spring and rain?
