It is raining it is pouring the old man is snoring .... Ok so it isn't pouring but it has been raining off and on and what better rainy day craft is there than making you very own rainy rain cloud.
You will need
Thin card (cereal box or similar)
1 .Cut out a cloud shape from the thin card
2 .Paint the cloud grey3 .With the left over card paint it blue4 .Let the paint dry - this took a long time and while we were waiting Neevah decided to have a nap once she woke up it was to late to finish off her cloud so we finished it the next day
5 .Cut raindrop shapes from the blue card
6 .Cut 3 lengths of wool
7 .Make 3 small holes in the bottom of the cloud and thread your wool through the hole and knot at the back - you can put some tape around the very end of the wool to make it easier for little fingers to thread
8 .Tape the raindrops onto the wool
We have hung the rain cloud on the window and it matches the weather outside pretty well lots of grey clouds about today.
