25 Rainy Day Crafts and Activities for Kids
Written by Jen Betterley
Nothing's better for a rainy day than puttin' on a show — and that's exactly why we can't get enough of this cool homemade puppet theater featured on BKids Crafts.
To get started, Mom Kayanna says that you'll want to have an empty cereal or cracker box on hand, along with scissors, glue, an X-ACTO knife (for Mom or Dad's use), coloring supplies, and small dowels (think bamboo skewers, popsicle sticks, or twigs). And for everything shown, you're in luck — Kayanna offers up the printable templates for both the puppets and the stage! She says that this was a great activity for keeping her own daughter busy, and that with older kids, you could also consider having them make scenery for the stage, or have them act out their favorite stories. Be sure to check out the post for the free templates; this is one production that's sure to chase away those rainy-day blues!
