"Little Cloud" Art Project Sample This activity was created as a follow-up to the story “Little Cloud”. Blue construction paper and some cotton balls create a simple way for children to connect with the story and the environment.

Recommended Grade Level: PreK-1

Supplies Needed:

blue construction paper

glue (liquid in bottle)

cotton balls (3-5 per student)


After reading the story, encourage students to look around the room and think about all the different things that clouds can look like. Encourage students to use their imaginations to think of something they would like to create. Demonstrate how to stretch and pull the cotton balls apart to form different looks. Allow students time to manipulate their cotton. Once completed, provide glue. Remind students that much is not needed to hold the glue in place! Taking phrases from the book (e.g. "Little Cloud changed into..."), have students dictate what their cloud is and write it on their creation.
