Cloud update...

The photos from National Geographic mentioned in yesterday's post have a handful of good information about clouds--they're not just good for guessing. They even have some lenticular clouds from Mt. Ranier like our previous post. Check them out!

For a simple cloud art project (we ended up liking it!):
Write, or have your child write, a cloud name in white crayon on a white sheet of paper.
Have your child draw the cloud in white crayon next to its name.
Paint in blue tempera paint over the drawing to create a blue sky.
Using a paper towel or tissue, wipe away the paint, which will leave the paper stained blue--and your clouds showing through!
