Cloud game - Craft for kids

Hey Brassy readers! I hope you are enjoying the 1st week of SOS -summer of skills - posts! I wanted to pop in here and share 1 of my own this week! 


I think every kid looks at the clouds and sees a shape. An animal, a person, a type of vehicle, etc. It's so fun to find these "pictures" in the clouds but sometimes hard for others to see the same thing. With this fun game - everyone will be able to see exactly what they see! 

Cloud pictures
 supplies:
camera
printer/paper
Cover sheets
dry erase markers

Step 1: Take some pictures of the clouds outside. If your kids are old enough, let them take the photos! It allows them to be part of this creative process and capture some shots they like! Just lay down on the grass and start snapping!


Step 2: Copy the cloud pictures into Word or a similar program to resize and print out. You can put 2 cloud pictures on a page or just 1. And don't be afraid to flip or turn the photo. Who's to say it's upside down??? Then slip the printed papers into the plastic cover sheets.


Step 3: Using a dry erase marker start drawing those pictures you see in the clouds! Then pass them to a friend and let them create what they see in the same cloud! (and yes this is for kids but I love to doodle just as much as they do!)


When you are done the cover sheet wipes clean easily with a napkin for use another time! 


Have fun! These are great for anytime, car travel, quiet time (during church), etc.
I'll be linking up and sharing this game HERE
