Fun Rain Cloud Facts

  • There are different types of clouds the 3 most common ones are: cirrus, cumulus, and stratus clouds.
  • Did you know that water can also fall from the sky in the form of hail, sleet, or snow?
  • Rain is an important part of our water cycle. Without water, most parts of our planet would turn into deserts. To learn more about our water cycle take a look here.

1. Learn About The Weather

As we already started learning above there are so many fascinating cloud facts.

Why not get a cloud book and teach your children more about clouds? Print out one of our three cloud templates and make a fun cloud craft out of it to manifest your studies.

What is also a fun way of engaging your children in the subject is making your own rain cloud. They can learn through creating and seeing the process by themselves.

Here is the full instruction and explanation of a DIY Rain Cloud. Go check it out!

2. Create a Weather Chart

Our small cloud templates are ideal for creating a weather chart. Talk every morning with your children about the dates and seasons and also about the current weather.

3. Learn About The Water Cycle

Clouds are an important part of our water cycle. In the video above you could see how the water cycle works.

Add our cloud outlines to your studies and let them craft or color them while you explain how the water cycle works.

Visual learners also might like the following water cycle experiment. They can see how it works step by step. It is pretty cool.

4. C is for Cloud

Add our easy cloud templates to your preschool studies, while learning the letter ‘C’.

Print out some upper and lowercase letter C worksheets and let your students trace them. You also can add some simple cloud crafts for the letter C sound.

Make sure to study each letter individually so your students can form memories for each letter and memorize them more easily.

5. Cloud Coloring Pages

The easiest way of using our templates is as cloud coloring pages. Take our large cloud outline printable and turn it into an easy cloud coloring sheet.

You can adjust the difficulty level depending on your children’s age. Use the larger picture of a cloud for younger children and the smaller cloud printables for older children.

Instead of coloring their cloud sheets with markers, they can also try various new painting techniques to make them more interesting. For example, have they tried Salt Painting yet? It is really fun. Take a look at the link to find the full tutorial!

6. Cloud Stencils

Using our cloud printouts as stencils is also an easy way to make an adorable cloud craft. For cloud stencils, I recommend using smaller or medium-sized cloud outlines!

We love using an old toothbrush for our stencil projects. With the help of watercolors, you can create beautiful cloud artwork.

You can find the full instructions and complete Toothbrush Technique Guide here. Enjoy!

7. DIY Cloud Cards

Our cloud pictures to print are always great to make greeting cards or invitations out of them. I recommend using our medium cloud patterns and printing them on thicker paper.

Your children can color them first and write a nice message inside for your family or friends.

If you are looking for great children’s sayings to brighten up their day, go check out our Children Quote Library. You will find messages for every occasion there.

8. Cloud Template Garland

Spring can be grey and rainy. Make a matching garland and decorate your classroom with it.

Not to look so depressing, add colorful umbrellas and sun printouts in between. It makes a fun spring craft project your students will love.

It is especially a good fit if you just learned about the weather or seasons.
