What do you do with stir-crazy kids when it’s rainy outside? I usually pull out our large tote filled with art and craft supply odds and ends! Watching the children create masterpieces, entertaining themselves as they explore, makes for a fun-filled afternoon!
If you want an idea that is not only creative, but makes frame-worthy pieces of kid-art, check out the Marbling Art Preschool Craft guest post I did on the Gummylump Blog! We played with shaving cream and Melissa & Doug finger paints to create a marbling effect.
It was also a lesson in color theory for the kids: red + blue = purple, etc. It started out with paint placed very carefully, and ended in a big yet fun mess and paint up to our elbows!
The pages ended up having a soft coating due to the shaving cream layer-a very interesting effect! It was fun to see the kids experimenting and trying new color combinations.
