Wednesday Explorers Club ~ Rainy Day Fun

The world looks different in the rain. Clouds seem to hang closer to the ground. The earth smells greener, fresher. So if you've got some days of gentle rain, head outside for some Rainy Day exploration.
  • take time to notice the rain - what it feels like, smells like, tastes like.
  • rescue worms trapped in puddles. Gently pick them up and move them to earth. While you're at it, observe them as they crawl around in your hands.
  • if there's an overflowing gutter, have a leaf or twig race - or fold up some tiny paper boats and send them off on an expedition.
  • go on a nature walk. What animals do you see when it's raining? What do you see after the rain?
  • if you have a waterproof camera, take photos of the world during the storm. Can you catch raindrops splashing in puddles or on the sidewalk?
