Little Paper Clouds

Kindergarten students will read the Eric Carle book, Little Cloud, and then create a work of art based on the story.

What You Do:

After reading the story and discussing The Little Cloud, we made our own clouds to go with our Raindrop Pictures. On piece of the white paper, draw a large cloud by drawing a large fluffy circle.

  1. Have each child draw the face on the Little Cloud
  2. Put both pieces of paper together and cut out cloud along the lines you drew. (I had to help my Kindergartners with this part)
  3. Paste or staple around the cloud leaving top open like a pocket.
  4. Wad up some of the newspaper and stuff the cloud with it.
  5. Staple or paste the top of the cloud closed so the stuffing won’t fall out.
  6. Staple onto bulletin board with the rain pictures
