Rainy Day Art Activities

Hands-On Play Party Stir the Wonder

Welcome to the Hands-On Play Party! Each week my co-hosts and I will share our ideas for a fun, hands-on activity! This is also a linky party for any hands-on learning activities for kids of all ages! So be sure to check out all the great links shared at the end of this post! If you are a blogger I invite you to share any ideas you have for sensory play, early learning play, gross and fine motor skills play, and indoor/outdoor play that is presented in a hands-on way!

Rainy Day Art

Last week was a wash out, it was cool, rainy and so not summery all week. We didn’t really do anything fun or creative. We all have weeks like that, right? But I did pick up some wooden toys by Craft Project Ideas at Wal-Mart for Caden to paint that he had asked for, and he really enjoyed this simple rainy day art activity.

Car Painting

This activity was really simple to set up. First I taped some newspaper down on the table with some painters tape for easy clean up. Then, I grabbed the apron, paint brush and little pots of acrylic paint given to us by Craft Project Ideas from our homeschool/craft closet right there in our dining area (I’ll tell you all about that soon in another post) and let Caden get creative on that rainy afternoon.
