Rain is falling down

Rain is falling down

We are suckers for visual aids and because of this, our students appreciate us a lot!

At least that's what we think! Regardless of who thinks what and why we are back again with another arts and crafts project. The purpose of these projects is to show you how to make simple and purposeful visual aids for use in your classes. Our love for DIY influences us to make our own props and these videos are examples of several of the visual aids we've made and used in our classes. 

Our current theme is rain and so our current project is a rain themed one. In our previous rain themed, arts and crafts video we made five cotton ball clouds. They were easy to make and our students loved them. We then made up a song about them and showed you how we put them to use in our Storytime with Tiva - Five White Clouds video.

This time we will be showing you how to make raindrops using simple tools and with a simple goal in mind. This project will then follow in the same footsteps as our previous project, so be on the lookout for our upcoming Storytime with Tiva segment to see how we put these raindrops to use. 


Take a look!

For now, if you are looking for a simple rain themed, raindrop inspired arts and craft project, then feel free to watch our video. You will be able to see the tools we used and our finished product.

Oh Rainy Day,

Tiva & Randa
