This is a very charming set up and the kids will absolutely love it. The theme
is whimsical, musical and educational. During the playdate, the kids make their own streamers. You can use ribbon, felt strips or any other kid safe string.
It's best to tie the ribbon around a large ring. You can use plastic shower
curtain rings or large plastic bangle bracelets. The kids will be waving them
around while hopping from cloud to cloud so you don't want to use stick like
objects for the streamer handle. We used blue painters tape to form the cloud
shapes on the floor. We chose painters tape because it doesn't leave any
residue or glue after you remove it. When the kids arrive, let them make their
streamers as the craft activity and then for the fun, have them jump from cloud
to cloud. Play some music as they hop. Stop the music to see who hopped the
most clouds. Play again to start the hopping. Make sure the clouds are close
enough so their little legs can reach each cloud in one hop. During this
palydate, the kids learn fine motor skills while making the streamers, following
instructions with the stop and go and muscle development with the hopping. The
playdate also has a fun take away-the kids will enjoy taking their newly made
streamers home to show dad!
