I made the poster sheet to show the kids what they were going to do for each cloud, and then gave them the individual cards to illustrate each cloud.  I recommend that you print the cards or the poster sheet directly on card stock so it is sturdier and it also gives you the background color so it is not white.
This is what we used for each cloud. For the cumulus and cirrocumulus, we mixed equal parts of shaving cream and glue. I had heard about this mixture but never tried it. It is so fun and it dries puffy.
The cumulonimbus is the same mixture of shaving cream and glue and then I added a few drops of black paint to make it gray. The cirrus clouds are chalk marks and the stratus and stratocumulus are cotton balls spread out.
