What to explain?

Kid : What are clouds made of?
Dad: They are made of water vapour, that was formed by heat of the sun…
Dad: Actually they are made of marshmallow, and when you are hungry you can eat them…

The above conversation is from the movie Project 2, that I saw yesterday and this has given raised a big question on what is the best way to explain things to children?

To my son (turned 4) who keeps asking a lot of questions, I have been answering them in actual scientific terms and now I think, was that necessary at all? What would have happened if had answered differently, like things which will make him go crazy?

What is best possible way to explain things to children, exact boring facts or imaginary stuff, please share your thoughts.

Edit :

I realize that, I haven’t made my self clear in the above post. So here is concise question that I have in mind.

Should we teach the children hard factual answers or give him/her a poetic answer?
