Quick and Easy Rainy Day Toddler Activity

Summers here!!  Summer’s here!!

Time to get out and celebrate!

Run through those sprinklers with complete abandon!

Chase after that ice cream man with unbridled shamelessness!!

It’s time for fun!
It’s time for sunshine and laughter!

 

It’s time for

                    …RAIN?  

While we know it’s inevitable, who out there is still surprised when those clouds come rolling in??

Don’t let a few sprinkles (or torrential downpours!) rain on your summer fun-time parade!

Try this fantastically easy and educational rainy day toddler activity instead!!

 

Materials Needed:

1 clear plastic container with a lid 

1 Kool-aid packet OR food coloring – your choice of color

Water

Miscellaneous house items that you don’t mind getting wet.

 

Fill your plastic container part-way with water and then add the Kool-aid powder or food dye until you reach the desired color.

Hindsight and all, but it would’ve been mind-boggling for my little girl to have seen the color swirl through the water when I added it…another day maybe!

 

Next up, my lady and I started going through the house, adding anything that was red to our container.

Each time we found something, we’d say the color and compare it to all our other red things (water, her pj’s, etc).

 We found a lot of great things to put in there!
Totally an awesome experience when she started to get the red items on her own!!
There was much cheering and excitement over that!!!
…and equally so for the green and the purple ones too!!

Gotta love my girl with her own will and mind and plan!

 

Well that’s it in a nutshell, folks!  Have you tried it yet?  Let me know how it went in the comments below!

I write about my life's core: Jesus & my faith, my family, and the struggles I have met along the way. I figure...I hope...that if exposing my life and it's lessons learned can encourage even one person, this blog and all the hours I have spent behind this computer will have been more than worth it.
