Cloud watching

Cloud watching is a fun activity for children of all ages and a wonderful way to connect to the outdoors from inside the house. 

Clouds can create pictures and stories in the sky. Can children see any shapes or images while cloud watching? Do they stay the same, or change into something else? Is it possible to record the pictures that the clouds make, through sketching or taking photographs?

This activity is brought to you from School Grounds North East. The aim of School Grounds North East is to help individuals, schools and settings to maximise the potential of their outdoor spaces for learning and play, take the curriculum outdoors, and ultimately achieve outstanding outdoor provision.
