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 easier.
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, did they try 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 the 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 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.
