Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

My son and I recently read Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. He did not fully understand it but he liked the flow of the book. Once we finished reading the book we did a few crafts.

I had a couple of extra CD's laying around the house and decided it is time to put them to good use. I used the CD as a pattern and cut out two circles of blue construction paper and two circles of yellow construction paper.

Other supplies needed for the Cloudy picture are two blue chenille stems, three white pony beads, cotton balls and glue (we used glue dots).

Attach three glue dots to one side of the CD. Cut the chenille stems in half and put a white pony bead on teh bottom of three of the stems. Fold the end of the stem up over the bead to hold it on. You will now put the non bead end of the stem in the glue and allow it to dry. Once dry, glue a blue construction paper circle on teh back of the CD and a circle on the front of the CD. Now you can glue your cotton ball clouds onto the blue sky.

Other supplies needed for the Sun picture are glue and orange tissue paper. I cut out lots of orange tissue paper triangles to go around the edge of the CD. Go ahead and glue those on. Once they dry, glue the yellow construction circles on teh front and the back of the CD.
