Any afternoon can be made just a bit better when you spend time creating with your kids. I love gathering around the kitchen table with a new project and watching their imagination come alive. Creativity sparks something inside children, and I’ve been having a blast trying a variety of art/crafty activities with my kids over the past few weeks.

The Rainbow Scratch Paper from Lakeshore Learning has been hands-down one of our favorite projects! I liked it so much, that I will be using it for one of the children’s art activities for the mom’s groups I lead. My children absolutely LOVED this paper, and were convinced it was magic!

kids (1 of 5)Just look at the pure delight on my son’s face as his sun drawing transformed into a rainbow before his very eyes. Using his included wooden scratch stick, he began to create his drawing on the seemingly ordinary black paper. As he drew, the black coating scratched away, revealing a beautiful rainbow underneath.

kids (4 of 5)My kids could have sat and created rainbow pictures for HOURS. We had the best afternoon as we sat and drew our pictures, chatting and laughing as we let something simple inspire us. You don’t always need something elaborate or something that comes with tons of moving pieces to engage your kids. These sheets of rainbow scratch paper were SO much fun, and didn’t require ANY prep work! Pull one out and you’re ready to go! Even moms who shy away from crafting can get on board with these!
