After reading (and reading and reading) Little Cloud by Eric Carle, we were inspired to make our own clouds in the style of the book’s illustrations.
This was such a simple craft project that my little ladies loved doing!

Saucer, plastic lid, or anything with a flat surface to spread out the paint
*Note: Since my girls are young, I drew the cloud shapes with a marker before beginning the craft. If you are doing this with older kids, you won’t need to do this.
The process is easy. Dump some paint on the saucer. Grab a cotton ball or two, dip in the paint and start painting your cloud.
After the initial set-up and a quick demonstration, I let the girls experiment with making their own clouds. We had some dabbing and some smearing and we also had a lot of fun.
Here are the finished products:
Hope you have fun making your own clouds!
