Finding fun indoor art activities for kids on a rainy day can be challenging, especially if your children are already bored with answering modules during the suspension of classes. No need to fret if you're stuck inside on a rainy day because we rounded up some fun indoor art activities for kids that will keep them busy and entertained during the rainy season!
SM Stationery is the best place to get everything you need to start a fun art project with your kids on rainy days! We want children to feel like they're right in an art studio without ever having to leave their homes.
Don’t let your kid pout all day just because it's raining outside. Give them an art and craft project that both of you will bond over such as coloring or painting. Bring out fun children’s coloring books and colored pencils like this Faber Castell Color Pencils, a non-toxic coloring supply that gives off fine colors that will stay beautiful on any canvas like coloring pads and books.
An interesting masterpiece can also be inspired by the rain. Have your kid draw the scene of rain outside using a sketch pad and colored pencils. Our Artherapy Spiral Sketch Book is perfect for sketching, drawing, and doodling. This sketch pad is priced cheaper than other brands!
DIY Color Wheel
Teach your kid about different colors by creating a DIY color wheel! A simple color wheel project for kids can educate them about mixing colors. You can print out a color wheel template on paper and label each section with color names.
Lil Hands Coloring Pens works best for this project as it comes with 24 colors and a smooth color laydown. With washable colors, these pens are also perfect for art projects, school work, coloring books, and more!
Paint by Numbers
Scribbler Artherapy is the perfect way to share a creative experience with your children. With the Scribbler Artherapy Kids Paint by Numbers Kit, kids can create their masterpieces by matching colors with their respective numbers. This educational and fun activity sparks creativity while developing children’s manual dexterity.
This kit is perfect for painting beginners and kids who are 6 years old. You can also work with your children to complete this art and experience the fun of parent-child interaction!
Painting is more fun when you use unconventional tools or toys. Experiment with different painting activities using indoor items like plastic spoons, popsicle sticks, marbles or stones, and more!
Before you start a fun and messy painting activity with your child, wear an art apron to protect your clothes from the paint. After all, being messy when doing art activities for kids is part of the fun!
Don’t forget to use a washable poster paint like Crayola Washable Poster Paint. With this kid-friendly paint, there's a better way to make a colorful mess. It's easy to clean up and contains no toxic chemicals. You'll love the easy cleanup and creativity you share with your children with this poster paint!
If you choose to use paintbrushes, you’ll need a paintbrush designed for kids with a soft grip zone like Faber Castell Soft Touch Brushes. In a child-friendly size, this Faber Castell brush set is perfect for teaching children proper brush grip techniques.
Paper Mache Art
Paper mache is a popular art project for kids in school. Bring this activity home for your kids to enjoy during the rainy season.
You can make anything out of a creative paper mache such as the classic paper bowl, a base for a volcano, piñatas, and more! Stick pieces of old newspapers, magazines, or recycled paper over an object or form with the use of a non-toxic Elmer’s Craft Bond. Let your child decorate their paper mache masterpiece with watercolor paint, glitters, and more.
Make the rainy season a magical time to spend with your kid by creating a fun slime at home using a washable, safe, and non-toxic slime kit! The Elmer's Slime Kit Unicorn includes three bottles of Elmer's Colored Glue in pink, purple, and blue, plus a bottle of Elmer's Magical Liquid. It's safe for kids aged 7 years old and up with adult supervision.
Colorful Paper Crafts
Brighten up your kids’ rainy day boredom at home with an exciting paper craft project! Give your kids colored construction paper strips and let them create a rainbow of their own. You can also join your kid in making origami with Construction Paper in Assorted Colors.
A pair of scissors comes in handy in a lot of paper crafts to cut different shapes. Just remember to guide your children as they use scissors to avoid accidents or better yet, use early learning spring-activated scissors like Maped Stainless Steel Scissors.
