Check Out the Home-made Activity of the week!
Puddle Splash

Outdoors, let your child splash through puddles in his/her rain boots.  Indoors, practice jumping, marching or walking tiptoe through pretend puddles made with colored paper or towels. 

As you splash together sing this adapted song by Susan Moon to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat":

Rain, rain falling down,
Falling all around.
What a lovely sound you make,
Splashing on the ground!

This week's idea came from:  Toddler Theme Calendar by Elizabeth McKinnon c. 1999.
