Rain Painting

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 20 minutes

Materials:

  • Food coloring
  • Paper plate

This is a great way for your child to observe how water reacts with other materials. Your child will also be able to experiment with mixing colors. This activity is only appropriate if your child will not be upset when the painting is altered.

  1. Let your child create a colorful design by putting drops of food coloring onto a paper plate.
  2. Have your child take his creation out in the rain to observe how the colors run when the rain falls on them. Be sure to stop before all the color is washed away or the plate becomes too soggy.
  3. Return indoors, and let the altered picture dry.
