How to Make a Rainshaker!
You will need: empty plastic bottle, rice, food coloring or water color, ziplock bag
Fill a ziplock bag a quarter of the way full with rice. Put a few drops of food coloring or water color in the bag and close. Knead the bag until all the color has spread over the rice. Use a funnel to put the rice in the plastic bottle. Put this fun saying on the bottle:
Shake this rainshaker up and down,
To hear the rains pitter-patter sound.
These are fun foods to use for a jungle theme! You can sort, graph, match, or make a necklace with the fruit loops. The Animal Cookies are always fun for the kids to go through and look at the animals, but always save the box, I have a cute activity coming up with it! The Curious George fruit snacks are fun for the kids to eat because they all love George!

I Went to the Jungle
(sung to: London Bridges)
I went to the jungle one day,
jungle one day, jungle one day,
I saw a ________ on the way
and this is what he said,
(make animal's noise).
(make animal's noise).
*Fill in a new animal and sound every time you sing the song*

Luke making snow castles! The kids really like bringing the snow inside and watching it melt. Sometimes we sprinkle different things on the snow to see what makes it melt faster. We have used salt, sugar, pepper, bread crumbs, etc... So it's a little sensory and science all mixed together!
