Rainy days call for more involved projects and special materials. My kids look forward to these days so we can pull out supplies that we don't get to use all the time. These rainy day creations were the perfect chance to use our oil pastels and watercolor paints! The bright colors almost made us forget how dreary it was outside!
Gather all materials. I just love the vibrant pictures that the oil pastels create for this art project! My kids love using them and consider them a "special treat," perfect for rainy day fun.
The kids used the oil pastels to draw pictures on their construction paper. They added grass, clouds, a sun, and spring flowers. My 4-year-old and 8-year-old even added themselves to their pictures. It was so much fun to hear them making up stories that went along with their pictures.
