Rainy Day Crafts and Activities for Kids


Bathtub Art

Bathtub art turns bath time into fun time by using shaving or whipped cream to paint pictures on the tub wall. Or, for a rainy day activity for kids, use a baking sheet as a canvas.

What You'll Need:

  • Shaving cream or nondairy whipped cream
  • Design tools such as a comb, washcloth, or sponge
  • Baking sheet (optional)
  • Food coloring (optional)

When you're done with one foamy picture, lightly wipe your hand over the surface and you have a new canvas.

Here's a fun project to do while you are in the bathtub.

Step 1: Cover a side wall of the tub with a big handful of shaving cream or nondairy whipped cream.

Step 2: Use your fingers, a comb, a washcloth, or a sponge to draw a picture in the shaving cream.

Step 3: If you want to make a different picture, wipe your hand over the surface of the shaving cream and start all over again.

When you are done creating your bathtub art, make sure you rinse off the shaving cream from the bathtub wall.

If you are not in a bathtub, use a baking sheet as your canvas. Place a handful of shaving cream or nondairy whipped cream on the sheet. Add a drop of food coloring to the cream and blend together. Now you're ready to create some fun art.
