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.
