April Showers Weekly Kid's Co-op

April calls for lots of April Showers crafts and activities.  Here is a collection of some great rain and weather activities shared last week on the Kid's Co-op and some crafts of our own!

This week, we used oil pastels and water colors to create multi-media Rainy Day pictures for The Studio.

We also did "U for Umbrella" with the younger kids.  The kids love using watercolor paints. 
Next week, we'll be continuing our Rainy weather activities, starting with this great activity to make Rain in a Jar from Train Up a Child.

 And here's another Rain Cloud in a Jar that creates some beautifully visual precipitation from Mama's Little Muse.

It's also a great time to start tracking the weather.  Here's a simple printable weather wheel for preschoolers to make.

 And, while you're using the weather wheel and charting the weather, why not make a simple rain gauge to measure how much rain we get during the next storm?  Here's a simple Homemade Rain Gauge from The Imagination Tree.
While we're talking math and science, here's a great Raindrop Counting Activity from The Studio that uses materials you probably already have at home!

Now it's your turn to share what you've been up to this week!  I love looking at all the great ideas!
