Rainy Day Activities for Kids
This beautiful rain craft is the perfect rainy day activities for kids. It is simple, stunning results, and fun kids activity in the rain!
Set your art project outside in the rain. As the rain saturates the bleeding tissue paper the color will run onto the paper, After 3 minutes pull off the tissue paper and bring your project inside to dry on a paper towel.
HINT: You can add tissue paper on top for a second layer of color if you like.
Isn’t that beautiful! I just love how the tissue paper creates such a natural, blending of colors to make a perfect sunset.
We tried making this rainy day craft using markers too. It does work, but you need to be aware that the markers will bleed too so you will only want to let it sit for a couple minutes. Also, make sure that any marker you use is simple and in just a few spots.
This is our lighthouse at sunrise made in the rain.
