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.


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


Lay out your paper and dot with food coloring. raindayart1


Place your paper outside on a flat surface.

Ta-da! Some groovy artwork (pictured above) to display or cut into collages.

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.
