Rainy Day Recess!
What are your favorite activities for rainy day recess? I like to keep some commercial games handy that were ONLY used on rainy days. I always put the location of these games in my sub. plans. I also like to use crafts on rainy days. One of my favorite spring crafts is making tissue paper flowers. Here are some directions for easy paper flowers.
You will need green pipe clears and sheets of tissue paper in different colors. Cut the tissue paper into squares. Layer the different colored pieces of tissue paper so that the corners all point in different directions. Then insert a green pipe cleaner through the center and carefully scrunch the paper to make a flower. Bend the top of the pipe cleaner in the center of the flower to hold it in place.
If you don’t have time to cut all those tissue paper squares, send the tissue paper to parents who have volunteered to cut things at home.
