A great use for our big picture windows

I set this up as a passive program during winter break. We have large windows in the Children's area, so I hung the NASA cloud chart for comparison, reworked and posted some of the included background info and invited participants to create the cloud types they see with cotton ball bits on small blue quarter sheets. I posted a large piece of matte board and left it with pieces of tape for them to add their submissions. It's been a nice way to incorporate the outdoors with the convenience of being inside and warm in the days before school starts up again.
