Well Monday was a very rainy day. It was so rainy in Sheffield that even some of the buses and trams stopped running! But in nursery we like to make the most of the wet weather. Our new outdoor suits and wellies mean we can go out whatever the weather and we did!
We had lots of fun painting outdoors. We tried different paints, chalks and crayons on paper then put them in the rain to see what would happen…
“It’s washing it away”
“It’s getting it clean”
“It’s making purple water down the yard”
“That one int, that one is still there”
We also made some sounds and music with the rain.
In a tuff spot we put different containers and let them fill up with water. We then hit them to listen to the different sounds they made…
Do you go out when it is rainy?
There’s lots of fun to be had in the rain. You can splash in puddles, sprinkle paint in puddles to make pictures, build shelters, put out pans and let them fill up with water and listen to the sounds, catch the rain etc… Just make sure you’ve got coats and wellies on!
