Paint a Rainforest

Let’s paint and create! Mix art and science to design a beautiful tropical scene.

Rainforests are tall, dense jungles where – you guessed it – it rains a lot. In fact, rainforests get anywhere from 79 to 394 inches of rain in a single year – that’s almost up to 33 feet of water! Compare that to the average amount of rain in Cleveland, for example, which gets 38 inches of rain a year, and you get an idea of just how soggy it is in a rainforest.

In this activity, we will combine science and painting to learn more about rainforests and the world around them. By the end of the activity, you will see how different paint materials and colors can work together to create a unique and beautiful jungle scene.
