Clouds from Cotton Balls

On the back from her nursery, Ria pointed out to the clouds. That is when we decided to make our own. And since it was 'Letter of the Week - C' it seemed like the perfect activity to do.

Things required for 'Clouds from Cotton Balls' craft are: Blue or grey paper (you may cut it into a cloud shape like we did with a pair of scissors), glue and cotton balls or loose ones made into balls.

Put glue in various places on the paper. Get your toddler/preschooler to stick the balls on the glue.

And you are done! A very simple and easy way to teach your child about weather.

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
