We explored wind and sun each on their own day this past week, but the list of activities was not particularly robust for either, so I'm combining them to one post. Read below to see how we took advantage (or TRIED to take advantage...) of a week of wild weather.
We read a lot of books around here (and sing a lot of songs too). This is not an exhaustive list of everything we read and sang this week, but rather the books and songs we incorporated as extra variety and to delve further into our weather theme.
Despite it being a solid week into April in an area where spring is generally warm, we had the pleasure of experiencing some snow this week. We are even expecting some significant accumulation tomorrow. So even though I was expecting more "April Showers" type weather for theme, we were able to experience some winter weather too!
In addition to the weather mother nature gifted us, we did some of our own exploration as well. The activities we did today to explore winter weather were some of my toddler's favorites this week.
Our very first week has already served as a lesson in flexibility (but let's be honest - the past two years of becoming a parent have TRIED to teach me about flexibility and I NEVER learn!). We were actually supposed to focus on farms this week, but the weather was SO WILD that I just had to take advantage of the opportunity to experience so many types of weather in such as short period of time.
Read on to see what we did to explore clouds and rain.
