We will be rowing it next week...I have checked the archives, but was wondering if anyone had some fun things they did-they want to recommend to me...


(The post about fun ideas with Ferdinand makes me want to re-row it again! We had so much fun with that one!)

We did a lot with weather on this one...but here are some ideas we used:

*make your own cloud and rain - pan of water heated, etc.
*use parchment paper as your "road" and put water on it, roll matchbox cars across it, add water and freeze for ice effect, drive cars across it. You can also add oil to it and have them try and drive on it.
*I pulled out our little people car and figures to see how many people/animals we could fit in. :) You could also use a barbie car or any other vehicle you have around the house.

We have a local museum with antique cars in it, that we plan on visiting when we row this book again.

We made it "rain" too like Candace. Candace, I love the idea about overloading toy cars!

We also love to say these days, "Yes, but it'll be a squash!"
