It’s almost time for March to come in like a lion and out like a lamb, so it’s always a good idea to have some backup rainy day crafts ready to go. These are my arsenal of supplies with which you can do almost any kind of crafty find on Pinterest!
Watercolors or some kind of paint that is washable
Glue and tape of course and bonus points if you can get that fun tape with colors and designs
Different colored construction paper as well as left over wrapping paper from various events
Marshmallows (the mini ones)
Paper plates (even leftover party ones will do)
And keep those paper towel rolls and egg cartons!
Now for my top 5 rainy day crafting ideas:
5 Pipe Cleaner Animals – These animals are primarily reptiles and appeal to most kids.
4 Paper Plate Animals – This craft is especially fun for emergent readers. You can connect them to the alphabet or book.
3 Cotton Ball Art – I just let my son paint the cotton balls or use markers. I don’t want to bother with dying them.
2 Marshmallow Fun – I love these creations! They are a little complicated for my 4.5 years, but my 4th graders LOVE making them.
1 Construction Paper and Paper Towel Rolls This is a fantastic way to let your kid(s) get their creative juices flowing. You can use any supplies you have because the sky’s the limit.
How do you get through the sometimes endless rainy spring days?
