Hi again,

I couldn't work out how to put this in the topic ideas section so I've had to post it here, sorry!

We have continuous, open access out door provision, which is great when the weather is good. We are hoping to build up a bank of plans/activites/enhancement boxes which can be used on rainy days! So far I have thought of splashing in puddles, collecting rainwater and (found in another post) listening to the sound the rain makes on different materials. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I also have a vague recollection that powder paint can be used to make rain pictures, can't quite figure this out; wouldn't the paper get soggy?

thanks

jo

I think if you use card and sprinkle powder paint on the card, leave outside in rain you get some lovely splashy pictures. Did try this once with paper and your right it did go soggy!!

 

How about moving the rainwater with drainpipes, buckets etc - having races with leaves in the running water - use dye to see where the rain goes - where does it go?!! - measure rain fall - simple sit and listen to the rain quietly. (impossible I know but well worth a try).

Will definately try the card and powder paint (perhaps not in torrential rain!)

 

I hadn't thought of using the drainpipes that we have outside with rainwater so will also give that a try! Might also try using the dye in puddles.

Thanks for replying! jo :D
