Kids Craft Inspired by "Little Cloud" by Eric Carle
This craft was submitted by one of our facebook readers, Jamie Turnbull! Thank you JAMIE! We love it!

Supplies Needed
  • Construction paper (shades of blue and white preferred)
  • Tempera Paint (or other washable paint) in shades of blue and white
  • Cotton balls
What To Do
  • Pour paint into individual small containers. 
  • Dip cotton balls into paint and dab onto paper.
    NOTE: Any color combination and shape is fine! Clouds are all shapes and sizes!
    Kids Craft Inspired by "Little Cloud" by Eric Carle



    Older or more advanced children will be able to make actual shapes from the book or make up shapes of their own.

    Younger kids will just like dabbing in the paint and swirling it on the page.
    Make sure and keep lots of extra cotton balls handy as the paint absorbs pretty fast and you will want fresh ones.

FEATURED BOOK
This kids craft project was inspired by Eric Carle's book "Little Cloud".  
Dear Friends,
Like most, I too watch clouds change into dragons, zeppelins and faces. I love it when the wind then transforms a dragon into a swan or truck. Of course, my dragon might appear to be a coffee cup to you? Little Cloud, like all children, engages in day-dreaming, make-believe and clowning around. But in the end, with some coaxing, Little Cloud does what clouds are supposed to do! I hope that you like my story and pictures.
Sincerely,
Eric Carle
