What are some kid craft ideas to do inside on a rainy day?
We have a bunch of kids from four years old to fourteen years old that are going to be inside while it's raining and we would like to entertain them with some crafts.
Kids craft ideas for a rainy day or when they are bored, there's lots of fun crafts and art projects to think of, just have a little imagination and the creativity will happen. read more
If you have any stacks of old magazines that you don't mind cutting up, there's a couple of things you can do (probably more for 6 and older). You'll need scissors, glue sticks and plain (or scrap) paper.
It can be a lot of fun to create new pictures by cutting out parts of others and gluing them together. You can create new people from parts of magazine ad people (cut out eyes, hair, different bodies, etc.)
Another fun thing for the older set is to go through magazines, cutting out words from headlines and advertisements to create unique, and often funny, poetry.
For the little ones, finger painting with pudding (+ food coloring) can be fun
Check websites for various homemade play-doh, clay, and salt dough recipes. The older kids might even have some fun making it.
That brings me to cooking - that can be fun for all ages.
Hi, Paul Edmondsn. How about making a chocolate swamp?
First, get a big glass container of some kind, something huge, like an aquarium or something like that. Make sure its clean and sterilized. It must be fit to eat from.
Next we want to mix up an unreasonable amount of chocolate and banana pudding in the recepticle. You should go to a big box store and buy the largest sized marshmallows you can find. These are to be like boulders or natural buoys. If you like, you can make them yellow or orange with food coloring.
Next we need lettuce. Take of whole leafs and fry them, hardening them, caramelize them in a frying pan I guess. These are to be the lily pads.
Now we want Twizzlers, the very tallest and thickest Twizzlers you can find. Stick them in the chocolate. Get some parsley or something like that, and stuff this on top of the twizzlers. These are now treees.
Can't forget the gummy frogs (to rest upon the lily pads) and a gummy alligator or two, opening his mouth menacingly. It goes without saying, doesn't it, the most gigantic gummy frogs and alligators you can find.
The room should be completely dark, with the exception of a single lightbulb suspended from a string high above you. And if you get your hands on a sound effect machine of some sort that completes the deal. An diarama that's both educational and delicious.
My favourite thing to do with kids on a rainy day is to make a wallet from an empty milk or juice carton. Kids love to do it. Whenever new kids visit our house and it is not possible to play outside, I show them the wallets and almost all of them love to make one themselves.
If you would like to know how to create a recycling wallet, visit my hubs. I have a detailed explaination manual in my hub called 'how to create a recycling money wallet'. I'm sure your kids will like it ;-)
Please visit my page above.. I have links to some great kids paper crafts! These would be perfect for a rainy day for sure.
Hi, what do you think of origami? I have some hubs on origami, here is the link: http://paperfolding.hubpages.com
I think collages are cute and will occupy them during the rain. Visit http://corkboardsheets.com for classroom bulletin boards.
I know you asked this a while ago but I thought I'd send it along in case it could be of use to you today. Follow the link below for supplies and directions.
Friendship frame with a photo and words! Easy to make and loved by kids of all ages. Keep your kids occupied on a rainy day and get a little education in at the same time! Capture memories forever with a homemade frame. Great sleepover craft project or a farewell gift for schools end.
Hope this helps, if you still need it
