This months study theme was The Weather so I needed a nice bright and colourful craft to hang in the classroom. My International Pre-School 5 and 6 year olds loved this Clouds and Rainbows Weather Mobile - Tim Sensei ティム先生.

To make this craft:

Preparation and Materials
Download the free clouds template in this page.
Print this on A3 paper.
Using a guillotine for speed and neatness chop up a selection of colored craft papers.
Glue.
Crayons.
Pencil.
String.

In Class
Have the children glue white craft paper to the back for rigidity. Japanese craft paper is a different size to international paper so I couldn't feed it through photocopier easily.
Colour then cut out the clouds.
Put a blob of glue in the centre of each cloud and stick the next cloud on top.
Turn the cloud over and glue strips of coloured paper. I said they couldn't use the same colour twice to keep it looking like a rainbow.
Using a pencil roll up half of each colored strip to add a curl.
The children taped a precut piece of string to the back of the cloud so they could hold it on the way home then hang it up at home.

Weather Mobile Craft

If you are integrating this craft into a weather unit then you will find the vocabulary and more in the Weather Flash Cards.

To make this you may also need…
