Rainy Day Activities for Kids

Rainy Day Pictures

Rainy day pictures rely on the rain to create an interesting effect. In this rainy day activity for kids, you can create your own masterpiece -- with a little help from the rain.

What You'll Need:

  • Paper
  • Water-soluble
  • Paint or markers

You've probably used lots of things to create pieces of art, like paint, markers, tissue paper, string, and even rocks. But have you ever used the rain to make a piece of artwork? This idea may sound all wet, but give it a try!

Step One: Use your paint or markers to draw shapes and lines on a piece of paper. Then bring on the rain! Place your piece of paper in the rain for about 20 seconds.

Step Two: When you take your "canvas" out of the rain, dry it out, and then check out your creation. Thanks to the rain, your shapes and lines will have turned into something else entirely.

Before you can make a rain picture, you need to be able to predict the rain. Find out how to predict rain on the next page.
