The materials are easy and for me cost nothing. You need construction paper, paint, and a dropper. Now, I didn't have a dropper until I realized I had an empty Tylenol bottle upstairs in the medicine cabinet. I started with blue construction papers because they are supposed to be clouds, but Little Miss Independent added other colors. Notice the black in the background? She also added purple, red, and orange.
We then folded the paper over and pressed our hands over it. Actually we called it squishing. Open it up and see what you have. Like the book, we wanted to see what the clouds looked like. I asked her, "Grace, what does it look like? Snow came up a lot, and I'm not surprised because yesterday morning she woke up requesting to play in the snow and build a snow fort. But then she told me it looked like spilt milk. And that is why I would do the craft first. My daughter would never have come up with that one by herself.
