When April showers set in, these rainy day-or any day-art projects are perfect to make together with your spring chicken.

1. Duck Finger Puppets

Punch holes in cardstock paper to create two circles big enough for little fingers, then glue on cupcake liners to make the bird's wings. When the puppets are done, have your kids act out a story your read (or they create!) using their new creations. (Via I Heart Crafty Things)

2. Spring Textured Jars

Add fun designs to recycled jars using 3D paint, and then paint over everything with a coat of regular paint in spring colors. Fill them with flowers for a pretty dose of spring. (Via Crafts by Amanda)

3. Nature Paintbrushes

First, go on a flower-finding mission to gather interesting blooms and sticks. Then use the items to create a watercolor painting. (Via Messy Little Monster)

4. "Stained Glass" Kite

Cut out small squares of tissue paper in bright colors, then glue the pieces onto black construction paper in the shape of a kite. (Via Makes and Takes)

5. Easy Birdhouse 

An empty carton is the basic beginning to this easy craft that may make birdwatching a new activity in your house. (Via Craft Create Cook)

6. Paper Chain Snake

Cut out strips of green and yellow cardstock, and connect them together to turn the string of rings into a creepy crawly creature. (Via Raising Little Superheroes)

7. Five Little Ducks DIY Play Set

Paint rocks of different sizes using yellow and white paint so each one looks like a duck. When you're done, it's a shape sorting game and imagination set all in one. (Via Red Ted Art)

8. Rain Sticks

Decorate a cardboard tube, and then fill it with items, like rice or beads, so your child can give it a shake to see if he can summon the rain. (Via Happy Hooligans)

9. Egg Carton Ladybugs

Cut out the bottoms of an egg carton so your kiddo can turn them into sweet lady bugs. (Via One Little Project)
