More Crafts!

Craft time again!

Today’s craft is another step by step one and…well, it doesn’t really have a name. I use it when we are reading stories about colors.  It’s a raincloud with a rainbow sort of, um, falling from it.  It doesn’t make much sense, but it looks cool and is fun to make and gives kids and parents a chance to sort and talk about colors.


Materials needed for each child:

sheet of white construction paper

about 15 cotton balls

construction paper strips, about 1 by 9 inches, in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple


glue bottle



Step 1: Draw a cloud on the white paper.*


Step 2: Cut out cloud.*


Step 3: Glue colored strips onto the bottom of the cloud.


Step 4: Glue cotton balls onto the cloud.


*I will usually do step one for the kids by drawing a cloud template onto card stock, cutting it out, and then having volunteers trace it onto the right number of sheets.  You can also have the volunteers cut out the clouds too.
