Imagination and curiosity are essential to the growth and development of tamariki. Looking up at the sky and finding creatures in the clouds is a great activity to practise these skills.

Why do it?

  • To encourage children’s curiosity and help them learn to think.
  • To teach them to notice things.

  1. Get outside and find a seat or a nice patch of grass.
  2. Get comfy and look up at the sky. (But don’t look at the sun!)
  3. What are the clouds like? Can you see any shapes?
  4. How many cloud creatures can you find?
