Splish, splash, splosh!

Splish, splash, splosh!

After last week’s heatwave the weather is back to rainy again! Luckily in nursery we  love all kinds of weather so we have been having lots of fun in the rain. Ever since our muddy puddles walk we have loved finding and making puddles to splash in.

How can we make the biggest splash? 

We took running jumps and tried to make the biggest splash in the big puddle around the side of the yard.

Then the children wanted to make their own puddle. We tried to make a barrier then used tarpaulin to stop the water getting out.

We noticed water had collected on top of the sand pit and collected it with buckets and pulleys then poured it down the guttering to water the flowers.

Do you have fun in the rain at home?

A Very Rainy Day

A Very Rainy Day

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!
