Free Clouds And Rainbows Mobile Craft
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.
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.
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.
