Let Your Creativity Shine Through the Rainy Days


Alberta weather can be frustratingly unpredictable, and let’s face it, storms hit our prairies often with dark skies and short notice. Don’t let the rainy days spoil your day! At Shop AGA we have plenty to keep you busy, having fun, and being creative – from puzzles and art-making kits, to activity books for the kids. So the next time a rainy day ruins your plans to spend the day at the park, consider fun-filled indoor activities!


First off, puzzles, puzzles, puzzles

There is nothing like the satisfying feeling of placing a piece of a puzzle in just the right spot. Whether you gather the whole family around the table, or you rather work on it solo with a cup of tea, puzzles can provide hours of meditative problem-solving and small victories.

Fun for the little ones

Activity books for kids are a great alternative to movies and TV. Colouring books are a classic choice, but there are so many different art-influenced activities to explore! 

Art supplies      Adult art activities

Art for adults

And for the grownups, the right supplies can inspire you to create for hours! Whatever you’re drawn to—from sketching and drawing, to calligraphy and writing—you can arm yourself with the tools that will spark your creativity.

Origami books

Fold your way to fun

Lastly, origami! A challenge for both kids and adults, this ancient art form of folding paper won’t only leave you with beautiful little creations, but studies have shown that over time origami can improve your concentration and motor skills.

Check out these great picks and much more at Shop AGA. Our friendly staff will be happy to show you their favorites.
