Cloud Crafts

Get creative with fun shaving foam paintings and think about all the different kinds of clouds. Why not see how many you can spot in the sky on different days? Do they ever look different colours? Why do you think that might be?

For some tips about making and using shaving foam ‘paint’, you can click here, or here.

For some guides to the different types of clouds your young people may like to create, click here for 3 simple clouds types, click here to watch children’s presenter Maddie Moates talk you through different cloud types, or click here for a more advanced summary of 10 different cloud types!

If this activity has made you wonder about what clouds are, and how they form, why not watch a video about the water cycle (e.g. click here).
