Story Time: Rainy Day!


Today’s springtime story time was all about rain! We sang rainy day songs and read stories about clouds and raindrops, animals and umbrellas, and jumping in puddles! For our craft, we made rain cloud mobiles with paper clouds, cotton balls, yarn, and paper raindrops. The next time you’re stuck inside on a rainy day, try this rain game to make the sounds of a rainstorm!

The Rain Game

Can you sound like a rainstorm?

First, rub your hands together (wind)

Next, snap your fingers or tap them on the floor (first raindrops)

Now, clap your hands (more raindrops)

Then pat your lap fast and loud! (raining harder)

Finally, stomp your feet! (thunder)

Now go backwards to make the rain let up!
