Transform the premise of It Looked Like Spilt Milk into this easy activity using actual spilt (or rather, gently spooned) milk.
- pie plate
- drinking straw
- Pour 4-5 tablespoons of milk into a shallow flat bottom bowl such as a glass pie plate. Using a drinking straw, gently blow onto the milk. What do you see? Turn it around. See a different image? Blow again. Now what do you see? How many different shapes can you make? What do you see?
Help your reader create a book that they will read over and over again by making your own version of Spilt Milk.
- After your child creates a shape with the milk snap a quick photo. Repeat with each new shape.
- Print the photos and glue each photo to a sheet of paper. Add the text based on the book that tells what your child saw then bind the pages together.
For example, if your child says it looks like a cow, add:
Sometimes it looked
like a Cow.
But it wasn’t a Cow.
- Don’t forget a final page with a photo of a beautiful cloud in the sky!
