Free Printable Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Activities

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a whimsical kids' story from husband and wife duo Judi and Ron Barrett, 1982. It's a modern tall tale, set in the town of ChewandSwallow. In this idyllic city, the weather brings all the food residents need. Instead of rain and snow, pie, hotdogs, spaghetti and fried eggs shower townspeople with meals (appropriate to lunch, dinner, etc.) It's a great thing, until the weather turns stormy. The food turns weird and morphs to sci-fi portions. The school is covered with a giant pancake. Homes are ruined by over-sized pickles. Businesses closed due to snowdrifts of cream cheese and jelly sandwiches. Happily, cartoonists and filmmakers have elected to create a feature length cartoon based on Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. The story has been added and developed to fill a movie. I'm pleased to note that Ron Barrett's original illustrations have been faithfully used in the cartoon. It's classic tall tale with a gentle moral: don't take a good thing for granted. Here are free printable crafts, coloring pages, worksheets, puzzles and lesson plans from the book and movie  Read more
