Supplies Needed:

  • Colored Craft Paper
  • Letter "S" Cutout
  • Elmer's Glue
  • Cotton Balls
  • Marker



Set Up:

We started by taking our cotton balls and ripping them up into small fluffy shreds, then we covered our letter "S" with Elmer's Glue.  Once our "S" was covered with glue we pressed our fluffy cotton ball shreds onto the "S" until it was covered, then we took our hands and pressed up the areas that were coming off the "S" so it had a more defined shape. We let it dry and glued it to our craft paper.

I waited until a properly cloudy day for this craft so that we could go outside when we finished and look up at the clouds.  I had hoped to show my son how fun it could be to look for shapes in the clouds but turns out he's not quite ready for that.  In the end we just talked about different kinds of things we can find in the sky.  (Sun, moon, stars, airplanes, bird etc.)
