Become a Cloud Inspector!

 

A few weeks ago on Pinterest I found a link for a cloud inspector that you could purchase. I pinned it for future reference thinking it would be something the boys would love to use.

(this is the one I found on Pinterest)

The other day as I was perusing the FIAR boards (Five in A Row) and what did I find? One of the wonderful moms that frequent the message boards there had created her own version of a cloud inspector and was kind enough to share her link! Who Hoooo!

I decided to make a couple up for the boys. While they were in Bible school I printed them up. I was not sure which size would be best. I  decided to make an 8 x 10 and a 5 x 7.  I liked the 8 x 10 size the best so ended up making two of those. I almost threw out the 5 x 7 and then decided it would be great to keep the smaller size in the car.  I laminated them and cut the centers out.  The original called for a popsicle stick as a handle but the boys decided they liked it better without the stick.

They were a huge hit! The best part is I did not spend any additional money for this! I so love free! This is such a fun way to add in a little school while we are out and about! Of course there had been much talk about clouds in our household since we made these!
