Weather and Pet Clouds

Today we talked about weather and clouds. We did a fun activity that demonstrated what happens to clouds before it rains. As the cloud gathers moisture (in our case, from the eye dropper) eventually it releases the raindrops into the air and we get rain! We used an eye dropper to drip blue water down our clouds. This part of the activity let us use our fine motor control and pincer fingers to see what could happen!




Eventually the "cloud" filled with moisture from the eye dropper and it looked like it was raining in our jar!







After our experiment we continued working on our fine motor control, letter sounds, weather science, and following directions. We made our own Pet Clouds!

  1. Thanks for your comment! The pet cloud is made with stuffing I picked up at my local craft store. The shaving cream was used at the top of the blog post to simulate the cloud in a jar. Hope this is helpful!
