BLOWING IN THE WIND
continued...

WE ARE THE WIND
Tie scarves or crepe paper streamers to your children's wrists and invite them to dance around like the wind. Encourage them to start out like a gentle breeze, then grow into a stronger wind, and finally into stormy blowing. Then have them reverse the process, gradually ending up at rest.
 
WIND, WIND
Tune: "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"

Wind, wind, blow the clouds
Fast across the sky.
Blow the branches back and forth
In the trees so high.
Elizabeth Scofield

 


LIGHT AND HEAVY SNACKS

At snacktime, serve foods that are lightweight, such as puffed cereal or chips, and foods that are heavier, such as apple wedges or broccoli florets. Ask your children to speculate about which might be good for an outdoor picnic on a windy day and which might not.
