Art Activity For Kids:

Weather art

I like this activity because kids get to practice their creativity skills, by making their own weather painting from scraps and paint.

It’s a great fine motor and sensory activity, and they get something that they can be proud of at the end.

This activity is inspired by ideas from Weather art.

This activity is great to teach your kids:

Fine motor skills involve movement of the smaller muscle groups in your child's hands, fingers, and wrists.

Developing fine motor skills will help your child to write and prepares her for school. But it will also help your children with everyday tasks like eating, and dressing themselves.

Sensory play is play that involves all the senses - taste, sound, sight, touch and smell. Sensory play is very beneficial to children. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play is also very relaxing and rejuvenating to children.

Step 1

Place white and black paint on a paper plate (or normal plate)

Step 2

Cut out waterdrops and lightning from construction paper and let child stick it on their page

Step 3

Let your child mix the black and white paint on their paper to color their paper grey

Step 4

Let them use blue and yellow paint to add color to the waterdrops and lightning

We didn't have white paint so we tried mixing black with yellow but it didn't turn out grey.

Each child played with the activity in their own way. My son used his glue gun to attach the items to his paper. My daughter really got into the paint and got really dirty.

If your paint is still pretty wet, you can just press the paper pieces right onto the paint. When the paint dries it will hold them in place.
