This is the sun, high up in the sky,
(Hold hands in circle above head)
A dark cloud suddenly comes sailing by.
(Slide hands to side)
These are the raindrops.
(Make raining motion with fingers)
Pitter patter down.
Watering the flowers,
Growing on the ground.
(Hands pat the ground)
Art Project: We made umbrellas and decorated them by using watered-down glue and different colors of tissue paper. Children dipped the tissue paper in the water, or painted the water onto their umbrellas and then layered the tissue paper over one another to create beautiful and interesting colors. We also discussed effect that water had when hitting or splattering on the umbrella.
