Sun & Clouds Craft for Kids

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have been cooped up for far too long. It’s been rainy (kind of typical for spring here) and the kiddo wanted to make a fun craft to “remind us of the sun”. How could I turn that kind of request down?! So, we grabbed a sketch pad and got busy.


The resulting craft was so fun and so simple, but it made for a great activity. Plus, now we have a cute sun and cloud on the fridge to help us remember that the sun is going to dry up all the rain and send the clouds away (eventually). If you’re ready for that reminder, let’s get started.

Tips to Make this Spring Craft for Kids

  • Start by grabbing your free printable template here. You can always try to freehand it, if you don’t have a printer or just don’t want to grab the template, but it’ll make it a lot easier.
  • Let the kiddo drive the bus. I mean, this is their craft, right?! Just roll with what they do. If they decide they want the blue paper we picked to be rainbow colors, let them. If they want a pink sun, let them. They can make such beautiful art if we let them be creative on their own.
  • If you have a kiddo that’s a little bit more impatient than maybe an older kiddo, instead of a glue stick, you can use double stick tape–I feel like that was a staple tool for my craft room when the kiddo was small.
