Imagine a rainy day in Washington State, I know hard right! Well to keep the kids entertained we cut up some egg cartons and painted them into caterpillars. Add some pipe cleaner legs, antennas, and some googly eyes. As you can we had a variety of ages and ideas working away. Enjoy another rainy day activity to help keep the kids busy and you from going crazy!

“Did you say we can play in pudding”, asks my five-year-old. This activity is more geared for young toddlers who wouldn’t know any better than to get paint in their mouths. Turns out my tidy toddler wanted nothing to do with this but the 3 and 5-year-old ended up covered head to toe.
I prepared as directed a few packages of instant pudding, and placed them in shallow pans. Put out some spreading tools such as paint brushes, cotton swabs, and popsicle sticks. In the end the girls were so covered they just finger painted. The kids either got down to unders or had a swimsuit on, and let them play. While it was warm outside than they were all ready dirty we had a water balloon fight after the pudding fun. I got a warm bucket of water and a wash cloth to get most of it off before coming inside for a bath.
