Spring is a season in which the snow starts to melt as the air becomes warmer. We may see plants budding and hear birds chirping. Animals are waking up from sleeping through the winter. It is often rainy during spring.

What you’ll need
- Inspiration Photo
- Cardstock Window Frame
- Watery Paint
- Glue or Tape
Here’s how to do it
- Set out the Inspiration Photo and any additional materials.
- What do you notice about the photo?
- What do raindrops look like on a window?
- How might you make raindrops?
- Do you have windows in your house? Where?
- Did the child demonstrate hand control?
- Could she squeeze the eyedropper?
Today we switched things up and instead of doing the activity in the Teacher Guide, we pulled an old curriculum kit with a spring-inspired process art activity.
The little guy had already done the spring flower craft and obviously, you already know that these two never pass up an opportunity to paint, so that’s exactly what we did.
Sometimes we don’t get through an entire box. That actually happens a lot. There are so many wonderful things in each and every little yellow school bus box that we can’t possibly do them all, so at the end of each month we pack up what’s left and put it away to save for later.
That said, this activity definitely didn’t disappoint and it was a great one for baby girl as she’s just learning to use an eyedropper.
We talk a lot about fine motor skills because they’re seriously that important. After all, little kids need to develop strength and control in their hand and finger muscles in order to eventually be able to write letters and numbers.
Both the little guy and baby girl had a wonderful time making their rainy windows and wrapping up our study of the seasons.
