Rainy Day Art

By Elyse Majorraindayart4

Is our Seattle-like forecast making you a little weary? Well, here is a fun activity to help you embrace (or at least not curse) our current weather conditions. Grab a cup of hot coffee for yourself and let’s begin.

Supplies

Paper (something sturdy like watercolor paper or Bristol), even coffee filters or paper plates
Food coloring
Rain

How-To

Lay out your paper and dot with food coloring. raindayart1

Place your paper outside on a flat surface.
raindayart3Wait for the rain and watch as the squirts on your paper run into each other. Let dry.
Ta-da! Some groovy artwork (pictured above) to display or cut into collages.

Notes:
I find that adding dots of yellow makes the darker colors really pop when the color-merging begins.
This entire activity can be done outside.
