Rainy day adventures

Did yesterday's weather keep you inside? Little Read Wagon and a few adventurous families had Play & Learn at Fairchild Park, accented with some big rain drops! 
Here's an idea for your next rainy day: 
  • Provide your child with some paper and water-based markers.
  • When your child is done drawing, take the paper outside and lay it down where the rain can fall on it.
  • Observe how the rain changes the marks on the paper.
  • If the rain just happens to stop before the drawing gets wet, use a spray bottle or eye dropper for a similar effect.
We used water color paper. But, any heavy paper would do.
Even copy or notebook paper would be OK. Just be extra careful or wait until it is dry if you try to move it.
