50 Rainy Day Activities
A cute collection of craft projects perfect for when the weather keeps everyone inside. The book includes a photograph of every completed project, and illustrated instructions for every step, so children can work on their own or with help from an adult. The sturdy, coated pages will withstand plenty of spills! Most of the craft projects are best for girls, like the princess hat, sparkly wand, fairy palace, and mermaid chain, but several of the projects would excite boys as well, including the pirate flags, pirate door sign, dinosaur painting, and paper caterpillar. You may want to plan ahead for these activities so you can make sure to have plenty of foil, large sheets of paper, colored construction and tissue paper, paint, glue, crayons, markers, and paint in store and ready. All of these craft ideas can be customized depending on the materials you have available, but most of the projects call for some kind of paper (felt or fabric scraps could be substituted in many cases). This book is a must-have for a crafty family during a rainy spring and summer or a chilly fall and winter! ~ Rachel D.
