We love living in the Pacific Northwest. But after so many days of rain, your kids might be bouncing off the walls with pent up energy. When you've exhausted all of your go-to activities and resources (and there's still 3 days until art class), it's Museo to the rescue! We've come up with a compilation of fun art activities to keep your creative child happy on that 8th (9th, or 10th) day of rain.
Complete the Picture - Download a printable that prompts children to complete famous paintings by giving them only a snippet of the picture.
Exquisite Corpse - Weird name, awesome game. This originated as a parlor game back when Surrealism was big, but now it's just a fun activity for one or multiple kids. Trust us, they'll love it.
Roll-A-Picasso Drawing Game - Use the printable and dice to make silly Picasso-inspired portraits.
Art History Matching Game - And the game is already made for you! Just print and cut cardstock and watch your kids learn without realizing it.
Scribble Drawings - Kids draw a scribble, then trade papers and use the scribbles as inspiration for a brand new drawing. This is a great one for restaurants, too.
Pass the Drawings - This is similar to Scribble Drawings. Have kids use multiple colors and encourage them to fill up the entire paper.
Dot Monsters - Like Connect the Dots, but DIY and so much more fun.
The Circle Game - Give kids a paper full of circles and ask them to stretch their creativity by making a different object out of each circle. This is probably best for older kids.
Luckily, art is fun, rain or shine. Stop by our art studio in Issaquah for family-friendly Friday night activities, summer camps, or even adult workshops!
