stART: Waiting out the Storm

This one was a bit backwards.  We drove home from a trip out just as a storm was starting, and my kids begged to play in the rain.  I mean begged!  So, I let them.

And then they played more.

We played in the rain under umbrellas.

We played without umbrellas.

And we played in our swimsuits.

And then we went inside and read the book I’d been saving for the next rainy day:

It’s a cute story about a kid and her Mom talking through what happens to everyone during the storm, and how the different animals keep safe and how the little girl keeps safe.  It was a perfect ending to playing outside as we sat inside and listened to the thunder storm the rain had turned into.

For more great art activities head on over to A Mommy’s Adventures to see what everyone else did this week.
