April Showers Art


Let children enjoy spring showers by having them sprinkle some powdered tempera paint on paper. Then place the papers outside. Invite children to watch as the rain finishes their paintings. As children watch, encourage some rainy observations:

  • What things look different when they are wet? The sand? The blacktop?
  • What new sounds do you hear?
  • Try clapping your hands to the beat of the raindrops.
