Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

It's Look Up At The Sky Day!

Today is Look Up At The Sky Day and we are going to spend part of the day looking up at the clouds. The boys like to see what shapes they can find, and it's fun to hear what they think the clouds look like. Most of the time, I don't see anything even close to what they see. Don't forget to look up at the sky at night too! There are some great constellations out there: Big Dipper, Little Dipper, and Orion are my favorites (probably because they're the only ones I can usually find!).

What Do You See? Leave a Comment on what you see in the clouds! Not to stifle creativity, but I shared some of our interpretations. Do you see what we saw or something different? Share your thoughts in the Comments!

1. Me: Bird, Bernardo: Pteradactyl
2. We all agreed on a Whale
3. Me: Ghost, Bernardo: Ghosts with little kid ghosts
4. Me: I have no idea, Bernardo: Shark (right) chasing a boat (on left), Higgins: Something chasing something
5. Me: Fighter plane, Bernardo: A ship with a cannon

A Few Facts About Clouds:
  • Clouds are made up of water or ice crystals.
  • Clouds look white because they reflect the sun.
  • The wind moves the clouds.
  • Cirrus clouds are clouds high in the air. They are thin and wispy.
  • Cumulus clouds look like cotton. They are fluffy and white.
  • Stratus clouds are thick and flat. They often appear before a storm.
  • Chart of clouds I found online
  • Cumulonimbus clouds indicate thunderstorms. The tops are flat and have an anvil shape. Sometimes, you can tell which way the storm is going by looking at where the anvil points.
