Here’s the fifth episode in our Science at Home series co-hosted with Maggy from Red Ted Art and Life at the Zoo and others. Watch our 4th episode in the Science at Home series and take on our kitchen chemistry challenge. To start with, I decided I just wanted five basic symbols; sunny, rainy, cloudy, snowy, and windy. To create the symbols, I did a quick Google search and found several free pdf templates for felt weather symbols. For the sun, I used light yellow for the outside and darker yellow for the inside, just like the original tutorial. To spice up the snowflake and make it a little more substantial, I decided to use topstitching to attach it to a lighter blue background. To create my board, I used a piece of black foam core board from my stash and cut a 12 x18″ piece.

Whether you're making fluffy, lamb-like clouds for a preschooler's craft project, creating clouds for a nursery mobile or assembling menacing thunderclouds to loom over a middle-schooler's Gothic diorama, basic cotton balls are the most versatile material available. Create blanket-like stratus clouds by shredding cotton balls into wisps and then adding several layers of wisps together with spray adhesive to create a dense, blanket-like look. Shred cotton balls very lightly so they retain their general shape and then glue them in place to create towering, puffy cumulus clouds with flat bottoms.
Glue a cluster of cotton balls that have not been shredded in place, crowded side-by-side, to create a fluffy cloudscape on a nursery mobile. Mix a few drops of food coloring and some rubbing alcohol in a small zip-close plastic bag. If you have something to attach them to, you can also hang shredded cotton-ball clouds from string.
Look up toward the sky and you may see any one of four types of clouds: cirrus, cumulus, cumulonimbus or stratus. I had grand plans for dying rice, finding star shaped containers and some flags for a 4th of July sensory bin but life got in the way and I ran out of time.

Step 5: Void and AuroraStarting with black, create a dark void between the spiral galaxy and around the floating planets using the Soft Mist method.
Step 6: Stars and CometsNow we can lift the covers, and move on to the final and super fun steps: stars!
It’s very easy to make, and even easier with awesome tools that my Dad has in his wood shop. Use a bit of wood glue to secure the dowels in the holes, and make sure the holes you drilled in the dowels are facing up and down!

Then I spray painted the whole thing (well, I taped off the metal things)…do you like my contraption? Then threading up the other color, do the same with the middle panel, sewing it to the bottom panel.
Then pin the two balloon pieces together like so, with the basket sandwiched in the bottom of the balloon. So as the picture above indicates, start your stitches near the top of the balloon, off to the side a bit.
Continue and it should look something like this…and then stitch around the whole thing, capturing the sky piece in the stitching as well! Now is where the paper clips come in, or in my case, I couldn’t find my stash, so I used some plastic scrapbooking letters. Then I threaded up the string coming from the balloon on a needle, and sewed through the bottom of the cloud and through the poly fil, out the top hole. Then when you’re all done stitching them up and have the placement how you like it, insert the thread into each hole, and tie a big ol knot to keep it from slipping out. Thank you sooooo sooo much been checking back every day for the tute on this gorgeous make.
I love love love this, I’m doing a sheep themed room for my son and have been drooling over a pottery barn mobile, not that I would ever spend that much on a mobile. I truly loved this mobile and I worked on it al spring.Yesterday I gave it to my sister, she is pregnant and has a balloon theme for her child.She absolutey loved it!!
Thank you so much, I made an owl mobile using your general guidelines and I absolutely love it! Hey, I am currently making two of these, one for myself and one for my sister in-laws baby! I mean the middle hanging piece which has balloon at bottom, then cloud, then another balloon at the top…Did you thread the string through the basket (top balloon) from the cloud then have it visible when going through the sky piece?
Today I thought I would share a fun visual aid that I created to use when I talk about the weather with my little ones. Then, I cut my kite pattern into quarters along the lines that are pre-drawn on the template and cut those pieces from bright pink and blue felt.
Tug the balls gently until they tear into wispy strips of fiber, then use spray-on adhesive or white glue to fix those wisps to the background or to the roof of a shoe box diorama.
Spray adhesive works best for attaching these clouds to a background or to the roof of a shoe box diorama. If this is for a diorama that's not in a shoe box, bend several pieces of floral wire at right angles to create a framework for the three-dimensional clouds. If you want a more realistic look, use a fork or your fingers to lightly shred the surface of the balls once the glue has dried. Cover any parts of the project that you don't want to be colored with a few layers of paper towel or sturdy paper. Use a needle to thread the string through fluffy, cumulus-style clouds, leaving both ends of the thread free for tying the cloud up.

So yesterday when my daughter and I had some time alone and quiet ( after weeks of family and running around) I used it to make this simple sensory activity.
I’ve been lucky never had any toddler do more than take the tiniest of licks but kids are all different. My youngest really loved playing with the shaving foam last time – never thought to add paint. I MacGyvered a garden stake, safety pin, and some tape into this…and it totally worked! Dab a few spots of hot glue like so making sure they are close to the edge, and glue the pieces down as shown.
Cut a long piece (like 3 ft probably just to make sure it’s long enough) of white embroidery thread (all 6 strands) and tie one end to your scrapbooking letter paper clip. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies (please, notice the new url for my blog), under the Page 2 post on Jul.

I never would have been able to do it without this tutorial as I am not particularly crafty or artistic. Tape or glue the wires in place on the diorama background, thread cotton balls onto the wires to hide them and then use spray adhesive to glue more cotton balls in place to create the clouds. Work delicately so you don't create any loose shreds of fiber that might drop on your little one. Remove the cotton balls and let them dry -- the rubbing alcohol helps them dry quickly -- then shred and glue them in place to create fantastical, candy-colored clouds.
Alternatively, you can place the clouds over a few layers of paper towels, spray them, then remove the paper towels and glue them in place once the cotton balls are dry. Some I learned from watching in the streets and on YouTube, some I figured out and modified through my failed paintings. I heated the water in a tea pot and waited until it was bubbling – before it whistled. See Step 4Covered Stencil : stencil touches the painting, creates defined shapes with sharp edges.
In the atmosphere, these particles could be dust, smoke, air pollution, soot, sea salt, sulfate, and more. See Step 4Raised Stencil :stencil is lifted a couple of inches from painting, creates defined shapes with soft edges.
I used it to create the spiral galaxy in an earlier painting -see last 2 images in Step 7- but find method 4 easier and quicker. When lit, it gave the painting an even better look, as the illumination made it come alive.
