Outdoor Rainy Day Activities for Kids
Don’t let the rain stop you getting out and about for some fun outdoor rainy day activities. Just get everyone into rain gear and head outdoors to enjoy some rainy day fun!
#1. Go On A Creature Hunt
Wriggly worms, slugs and snails all come out in the rain. Why not hunt for some and have some races!
Or see if you can find any frogs or toads.
#2. Make Your Own Rain Gauge
Measure how much rain has fallen during a certain time period by creating your very own rain gauge from a plastic 2ltr bottle.
- You will need to cut the top off the bottle and place the cut off top upside down in the bottle. This acts as a funnel for the rain water.
- Mark the heights with duct tape by holding your ruler against the bottle and placing the duct tape every 5 cm.
- Once the rain has stopped, you can find out how much has fallen!
