"Rainy Day Lesson Plans?"

I am an art instructor at an elementary (K-4) school. My art room is
across the street from the classrooms, office, and gym. It is housed in
an old home economics building. Whenever it rains, my students don't
come to me because I am expected to go to them. Since most of my
lessons are continued from one week to the next, I have to haul all the
art supplies across the street by myself, or have to come up with
another lesson plan on the spur of the moment. I was discussing this
problem with my principal and she said, "Just come up with some 30 - 45
minute rainy day lesson plans!" I don't want this "rainy day" class
period to be a waste of anybody's time. I want these lessons to have
artistic substance to them and be more than a way to kill 45 minutes.
All of the classroom teachers have crayons, scissors, glue, and
construction paper in their classrooms so I would not have to bring
these supplies across the street in the rain myself while holding an
umbrella. Does anyone have any suggestions for some quick lesson plans
or any sources where I might be able to find some? I certainly would
appreciate any help you might be able to give me.
