Rain Painting

Turn a rainy day into a new adventure with rain painting! Add paint to paper and then hold it under the rain. Kids can see the impressions of the raindrops, and watch the pain be transformed into a fun new art project!

Rain Painting: Turn a rainy afternoon into a creative adventure

We added the paint to paper plates, because I wanted something sturdier than paper for my active little guys.

You can stand under a ledge and just hold the paint covered paper… or you can get more adventurous (my kids’ choice!) and run through the rain, holding your project.

After they were done running around, they decided to get a little more “hands-on” with the paint! Luckily, we had a large bath waiting for us inside!Rain Painting: Turn a rainy afternoon into a creative adventure

They saw the impressions left by the drops, they tipped their heads back and drank the rain, they slipped in the wet grass…they had a wonderful time!
