What are some good rainy day activities for 4 and 5 year olds?

We do lots, but I am always looking for new ideas!

How about making a snow globe! This activity really shows off kid's creativity and is just a fun thing for them to do. First, grab any old clear jar with a top (make sure that the jar can hold water and won't spill when turned upside down). Also, find a small figurine or any other special object they want to put inside their snow globe. Next, get some glue and glitter. To create a snow globe, paste your figurine onto the jar's top or cover on the side that will be placed in the jar. While waiting for the glue to dry, fill the jar with water and then poor some glitter in. When your figurine is well attached to the jar's top, place the lid on the jar and turn upside down. You will have your very own beautiful personalized snow globe!

Animal Printouts! Search for an animal picture online and print it out (add “coloring” to your search to get simple-to-cut images). Then, cut out the pieces to make an animal puzzle. With crayons, markers, or paint, color the limbs and body. Finally, tape, glue or staple the limbs to the body.

We love to make flower hand cut-outs. Get green construction paper, as well as some multicolored paper for the flower petals. You'll also need scissors, a pencil (for tracing) and glue. Have your child trace their hand several times on the multicolored paper. Cut out and glue together to make a flower arrangement. Add stems and leaves with the green paper and you're finished!

Observing the clouds change color. Reading books, poems about clouds and weather. Making clouds with cotton balls. Paiting wet on wet.
