Things to Do Outside in the Rain with Kids
Don’t get stuck indoors on a rainy day. There are plenty of fun things to do outside in the rain to keep kids of all ages amused.
And once you’ve had lots of fun getting wet and splashing about, head indoors for baths and some warm drinks!
#1. Go on a Nature Hunt
Make it interesting by setting a challenge, for example – how many snails can you find in 10 minutes? Count the number of earthworms you come across. Look out for any interesting stones or leaves. Here is a fun nature scavenger hunt to download and try.
And when you get back inside you can use leaves and twigs to make a lovely nature collage or these leaf craft ideas.
#2. Splash in Puddles
This is great fun for all ages, but ideal for pre-schoolers to let off a bit of steam as well as encouraging them to count by checking how many puddles they found to jump in.
Tip – just make sure their waterproof trousers or dungarees are outside their wellies to help keep feet dry!
