These framed kindness clouds are fun and easy to make, and a great way for kids to surprise a friend with handmade gift of kindness that tells them just how special they are.
TO MAKE OUR FRAMED KINDNESS CLOUD CRAFT YOU’LL NEED:
- picture frame (or a dollar store canvas and blue paint)
- white cardstock cloud
- cardstock strips in rainbow colors
- glue stick
HOW TO MAKE A FRAMED KINDNESS CLOUD CRAFT FOR WORLD KINDNESS DAY
If you’re working with a picture frame, use a blue piece of card stock for the background. If you’re working on a canvas, start by painting your canvas light blue.
We used diluted liquid watercolour paint for this step, but you could also use acrylic paint or poster paint.
Next, have your child write his or her friend’s name, in marker, on the cloud.
Now, think up some of the unique qualities that you admire in your friend.
Choose 6 words that best described your friend, and write each word on the rainbow-coloured strips.
Before gluing any of the pieces in place, you can play around with the arrangement ensuring that all of the pieces would fit and display nicely on your canvas and in the picture frame.
Glue the coloured strips in place.
Now for the glitter!
Glue around the edges of your clouds with a glue stick and then dip the clouds into the glitter.
Shook them gently to remove any excess glitter and then glue the clouds to your canvas and card stock.
MAKER MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
We hope your kids will enjoy making these kindness clouds!
