In morning circle today I mentioned that I had brought in a ‘cloud machine’ today. I then turned on the projector for the children to explore should they wish. They were so excited about making clouds! I had set out a tray of translucent fabric (from the fabric store closure of course!) and a large white sheet hung on the playstand in front of the projector.
Throughout the morning the children explored with the projector, and included it in their play. Suddenly they were the cloud children and playing in the clouds. Some children also decided to line up some toys on a ‘cloud shelf”.
