25 Rainy Day Crafts and Activities for Kids
Written by Jen Betterley
Got a couple young budding artists in the house? (We do, too!) Mom Jill of Meet the Dubiens offers up a super-easy recipe for making these gorgeous homemade watercolors.
Perfect for making your own indoor rainy-day rainbows, these bright and beautiful DIY paints are made using baking soda, white vinegar, light corn syrup, cornstarch, and gel food coloring. Jill says that after using this recipe she'll never go back to using store-bought colors again, and even calls them "amazing" and "far superior" to their purchased colorful cousins. One major bonus to going homemade is that since you're the one in control of adding the food coloring, your colors can be as vivid as you see fit! Check out the rest of Jill's post for the full tutorial and to see the rainbows her kiddos created with their cool watercolors.
