Cloudy Day Fun - Toddler Art Project

We did this project at the library today. It is so exciting to see them make the connection between the stories and the art!

Cloudy Day Fun

Age: 18 Months - 5 Years (younger ones need more supervision)

Time: 10 min (+ Prep)

Theme: Clouds

Books: It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G Shaw, The Police Cloud by Christoph Niemann

Copy Paper
Crepe Paper Streamers
Glue Stick(s)
Adults get to use Scissors and a Hole Punch

Prep: Folding an 8-1/2 x 11 paper in half then cut out a cloud shape. Be sure to leave a little of the folded edge intact (see pic). Cut streamer pieces 6” – 12” long (3+ per kid). You can punch a hole in the top center of the cloud in advance too if you want.

Activity: Each child gets a pre-cut cloud, 3+ pieces of steamer and a glue stick. Open the cloud and glue streamers so that they will hang from the bottom of the cloud. Next glue the cloud closed like a sandwich. Add a string through the hole for hanging.

Notes/Tips: This activity can be made longer by letting the kids color faces on their clouds. We used blue streamers but a rainbow would look great too!
