See & Hear Nature Challenge #7

Bright Sky

This week, Jane has us kicking it old school with The Cloud Game. Who doesn’t remember playing this as a child?!

Summer is the perfect time to dust off this long-time favorite. Use it as a way to rest during hikes or while running through the sprinkler. Younger children particularly are very intermittent movers — so having something fun to do while resting, like playing the cloud game, is the perfect way to keep the play going.

For a little extra fun, try DLTK’s Bluster the Cloud craft.

As your children get older, they can learn to identify clouds.

Let’s make this really fun and share pictures of the clouds that we spot. Email me pix and what you and your children decided they were, and I will post them next week.
