When I was back in grade school, a friend of mine had a little practical joke thing. It was an envelope regular mail envelope. On the outside, it was labeled "Rattlesnake Eggs". So, my friend brought it to school and by recess time, we all knew about it. Wanted to see them. Dang near wet ourselves when opening the envelope resulted in a rattling sound! Dropped it and ran, mostly.

Inside, between some index cards, was a rubber band thing with a spinner. Wind it up, squish it between the cards and tuck all that info the envelope with the scary writing.

Anyway, the story didn't mention a sound, but I bet a little corn starch or something added to the envelope would result in a bit of cloud.
