Weather

Take inspiration from the weather to create beautiful art pieces! This art box has it all: rain, snow, wind, storms, and more! Children will learn techniques like paint-resist and they will utilize a wide range of materials in a fun, open-ended mixed-media project. Plus, they will work on their fine motor skills as they squeeze glue, sprinkle confetti, and string beads. Finish up arts and crafts time by whipping up a quick snack: fluffy meringue clouds!

Activities in the Weather Box:
Paint-Resist Rain Project
Playing in the rain can be a lot of fun! In this project, little ones will use a white oil pastel to draw invisible raindrops and puddles. Once they paint the background with watercolors, the picture comes to life!

Mixed-Media Abstract Storm
Angry clouds are swirling together in this piece of abstract art. Children will cut up tissue paper, paint with pipettes, squeeze out swirls of glue, and sprinkle on a bit of confetti to create a mixed-media masterpiece! It’s a great project that emphasizes the process of creating art rather than the end-product.

Melting Snowman Science Experiment
It’s a liquid. It’s a solid. This melty mixture can’t decide what it wants to be! This project gives little ones a basic introduction to the states of matter. Then they will get their hands into the mixture to squeeze it, push it, and scoop it. This is sensory play at its finest!
