Hurricane Art


My kindergarteners LOVE doing art! During our weather hazard unit, I was able to combine art with what we were learning about hurricanes with this fun hurricane craft!

Question to Explore

How can we portray the features of a hurricane using art?


  • blue construction paper
  • white and gray tissue paper (cut into small squares)
  • Elmers’ liquid glue


  1. On blue construction paper, create a spiral of glue from the center out to the edges.  Make sure to leave an empty circle in the middle to represent the eye.
  2. One at a time, take squares of tissue paper and place them onto the glue, starting from the center.
  3. Use the grey tissue paper squares at the center of the hurricane (surrounding the eye) because this is the strongest and most intense part of the hurricane.
  4. Use white tissue paper squares to cover the rest of the glue spiral.
  5. Hurricanes are named in alphabetical order after people.  Name your hurricane after yourself or create a clever name for it.  For example, I wrote “Hurricane Anderson” above my hurricane.
  6. If you would like, you may draw or glue an eye in the center of your hurricane.
