Face painting is a super fun way to get kids excited and to pique their creativity. Face painting can be a great activity to do before a snack and a photo shoot – and as you can see it can help occupy a good deal of time doing something that’s truly fun for everyone. Most face paints are hypoallergenic. Double check before you use them. Also test spot them for about 10 minutes to see If there’s a skin reaction.

Dress Up

A rainy day is a great day to go through closets and bins to find fun clothes to dress up in. Costumes from Halloween’s past, vintage clothing, or other fun outfits can be a blast to mix and match, and it gives parents a chance to see if anything needs to be donated or thrown away.


Picking a big empty wall gives your kids a giant canvas where they can use paper cut outs, confetti, cardboard, and toys to create a variety of scenes. They can involve toys, furniture, and just about anything else to transform their creative ideas into 3D scenes that will look amazing in photos!

A fun game you can play with your kids is to give them scenes from their favorite movies, images from posters or famous works of art, or even charades-style directions and have them reenact them. Take pictures and create a photo album of scenes!
