Cloud and rainbow craft

Before beginning this cloud with rainbow craft, it is best for an adult to cut out the cloud shape. This makes it easier for the kids to get going with the craft. To do this, cut a piece of white construction paper into 1/4th’s. From here you’ll have a rectangle. Next, cut rounded shapes around the edge to make it look like a cloud. You can use this as a template to make more clouds if doing this craft with multiple kids.

Now we’re ready for the kids to make their cloud and rainbow craft!

They will start by putting glue all over the front of the cloud. We used white school glue, but a glue stick may work too.

Pull the cotton balls apart slightly to spread them out, and then stick them to the front of the cloud. Continue until the front of the cloud is covered with cotton balls.

Next, flip over the paper and cotton ball cloud.

Cut pieces of ribbon in the desired lengths. We used about 8 inches for each color.

Put a band of glue along the bottom and add the ribbons in rainbow-color order. You’ll want to start from the right and move to the left. This way, when you flip the cloud back over, the rainbow colors will be in the correct order.
