2. Cover the cloud with glue and crunch white tissue paper squares all over it to form your cloud. (Here is my toddler pictured below, participating in this step)
4. To make our rain drops, I started by using a push pin to poke a line of holes from each heart to the cloud (For safety purposes, an adult will need to do this step).
You will want to make sure there is an even number of holes for each heart so the raindrops will work out properly.
5. To sew on our raindrops, we used a plastic sewing needle appropriate for children. I purchased a package of two at Wal-mart for less than $2. I threaded the needles for them and made sure to tie a double knot at the end. We ended up using crochet yarn simply because it was cheaper than the regular yarn. Any type of yarn should work just fine.
7. When you reach the bottom hole on the back of the paper, we cut the thread, and used tape to secure both ends of the thread to the paper. Then tie another double knot at the end of your thread and start on your next heart, continuing until each heart has it’s raindrops. We ended up having to re-thread our needle about every 3 hearts, but overall, I was impressed by how quickly my boys completed this process.
