A Windy Walk


Take children for a walk on a gusty spring day. While outside invite children to

  • show which way the wind is blowing.
  • run with the wind.
  • run slower than the wind.
  • stand still and move their arms like the wind.
  • run with streamers or balloons. (Which way do they go?)
  • hold up a wet finger. (What do you feel?)
