A few weeks ago, we introduced some basic cloud vocabulary through Montessori Cloud Cards, and then went on a Cloud Scavenger Hunt. We decided to round out our cloud study with some fun crafts and baking.
For this craft, you'll need some paper of choice. We used brown paper, but blue, black or grey might be more authentic!
You'll also need glue, cotton balls, and some white and black paint.
I bet you can guess the directions already!
To start, we used a cotton ball to paint wispy cirrus clouds.
Then, my kids dove into gluing cotton balls into clouds-like forms for cumulus clouds. I tried to emphasize that cumulus clouds usually have a flat bottom, but art is of course subjective! haha
Finally, we made some cumulonimbus clouds by mixing in some black paint and glue and getting a little cloud crazy.
To finish the cloud unit study, I recommend something yummy- cloud cake!
