1. Trace the cloud pattern from the template on a piece of craft foam;use regular use the pencil to trace the pattern.
Tip: You can use white cardstock paper for the clouds if you want to use regular school glue, but the clouds look nicer if you trace them on white craft foam. If you use the craft foam, you have to use the craft glue or they won’t stick to anything.
2. Cut out the traced cloud patterns using scissors. You will need two clouds for this craft.
3. Grab all of your colorful construction paper scraps, because it’s time to use them! Select rainbow colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet). Trace the small rectangle from the template on the craft papers and cut them out using scissors.
4. Determine the length for the rain part and cut a bunch of yarn strands to the desired length. Use any shade of blue for the yarn (rain).
5. Use cardstock paper or cardboard for the rainbow base. Trace the rainbow base on the selected material and cut it out.
6. Grab the paper
7. Keep adding the colorful rectangles until the whole rainbow base is filled.
8. Now apply glue along the bottom ends of the rainbow base and attach one end of the yarn strands on the glued part. Overlap about 2 cm of the yarn strands with the rainbow base while attaching them. Warning: This part gets a bit messy, so
9. Glue the cloud cutouts on the rainbow base. Glue one cloud on each side.
