Rain, rain go away!  Since the weather has decided to convert back to fall temperaments, here are art activities ideal for today's weather. Portland_Toys_Textured_Stencils_Melissa_and_Doug

Available in Dinosaur, Insect and Sealife these textured stencils are an all-in-one craft kit.  Trace the image, then lay your paper on top and use crayons to rub texture and shading into your drawing.  Awesome!  The texture really makes T. Rex pop!


For those a little bit older, pick up this Scrapbook Shadowbox kit!  Add your own photos, then use the frames, papers, stickers and embellishments to make a personalized work of art!  The kit even has glue and scissors included.  When it's all finished, hanging hooks are included on all four corners, so no matter how you position your collage it'll be easy to hang!  This is totally perfect for a tween girl!


And sometimes you just need pen and paper.  We love these Faber Castell Duo Tip Markers.  Fine and broad widths, and double the colors as a standard pack!  Plus, the quality is so great!  Although, since they've been in business since 1761 you can kind of expect great things!

Hope you have a day full of flashes of brilliance and creative genius!
