Hi, I'm Sam Kelly, I'm an artist and educator. And today, I'm going to show you a preschool art activity about stormy weather. You'll need a piece of black construction paper, you'll need some tin foil, you'll need some sparkly pipe cleaners, I've got a gold one here. You'll need a pair of scissors, you'll need some glitter glue, cotton balls and regular old white glue. And this project is going to be a nice sensory activity for the kids because they'll have these cotton balls to play with to tear open a little bit and make our rain cloud or thunder head. You could even incorporate paint into this activity, if you wanted to. And have them dipping the cotton balls into some gray or steely blue paint to make it look more stormy. But in this activity, they will get to use a variety of different textures and appearances, they'll get to see these nice, shiny items. And you can also use this to talk about the science behind storms, of which I personally know very little. I'm an art teacher, not a science teacher. So, let's give it a nice, big cloud and here's the fun part. You take your tin foil, and they can experiment with crumpling it up, making it nice and lightning-y. And that also will get glued down. This tin foil should be fun for their little hands to manipulate. And we'll use the pipe cleaners as well, just for a little something extra, some big thunder bolts. I would totally wear this on a sweater, just some shiny thunder bolts, I feel like that could be really hip next Fall. And of course, any storm is going to have a rain, so I've got more glitter, more sparkles and you can use that to ad some rain. And there you have it, it's an art project dealing with seasons and weathers for your preschool age children. I'm Sam Kelly, thanks for joining me.
