Craft Ideas for a Rainy Day

We’ve been crafting maniacs this summer! I’m sure we’ll be doing even more as the weather turns colder and we can’t go outside. I’m always looking for good crafting ideas and projects to stock up on for rainy days. Here are a few ideas:

1 – Ingredients to make homemade play doh – my homemade play dough recipe is here.

2 – Beads and string for bracelet and necklace making fun.

3 – Fabric markers. I shop for tote bags and t-shirts when on sale to have them on hand to decorate for a rainy day.

This week Max and I received a Halloween glow in the dark tote bag and Colortime Markers to play with. He was so excited. As you can see below, I couldn’t even get a picture taken without his little hand sneaking in to go after the markers.

Colortime Crafts and Markers are great for coloring pillowcases, t-shirts, backpacks and totes. And they have a selection of glow in the dark items available now. It’s such a fun activity and it’s extremely easy to clean up! This would be a great idea for a birthday party. I always love a craft project that doubles as a unique keepsake.

If you join the Colortime ‘Birthday Club’, you’ll receive 20% off and a free backpack with your order at
