An Enchanted Childhood Playschool ~ Summer Camp ~ Clouds

This week we focused on three main types of clouds: cumulus, stratus, and cirrus.

We did a two-part project for our cloud "study". 
Day One the children painted blue skies!

The following day they added cotton balls, represeting the three cloud types.
We talked about each kind and what we thought they looked like!

We labeled the backs so the parents could learn them too!

Monday was "release the frogs" day. 
Our little tadpoles (caught six week before) finally grew into the cutest little frogs!

Other fun this week:

Garden yummies!

New bunnies!

Hill climbing!

Tree hanging!

Path running!

Creek Splashing!

Each week I join several linky parties!  What a fun way to share and learn!
