RAINY DAY IDEAS
Today's Forecast? Nothing But Fun.
When inclement weather occurs, movies can save the day. Try these fun ideas when the weather just isn’t cooperating.
Jungle Party: Invite students to dress as their favorite jungle animal. Have a craft station for students to make their favorite jungle animal out of paper plates and paint. As students make their crafts, show one of your favorite jungle-themed films.
Drive-in Movie: Cut, paste and paint your way to your own drive-in movie night with creative cars made out of cardboard boxes. All you need are some large cardboard boxes, acrylic paint, paint brushes, scissors and paper plates to create these one-of-a-kind creations. Pair them with a car-related movie to help imaginations zoom to new places.
Dino Dig: Make your own dinosaur fossil hunt inside of your school before your movie starts. Take a large plastic tub or kiddie pool and use sand, oats or rice to cover plastic dinosaurs. Add in dried pasta, shells, rocks and other items to make the hunt more fun. Using paint brushes and spoons to dust the sand, oats or rice away, invite groups of children to take turns finding out what’s buried beneath. Pair this activity with your favorite dinosaur movie.
