(Classic Play) Singing in the Rain


A rainy day can often mean restless kids and unspent energy. The next time the gray skies feel like they are closing in on you, embrace them and turn the day into a classic childhood adventure.  Open up a folding chair for yourself in the garage and let the kids run barefoot in the rain and splash in the puddles.  Even encourage them to keep their normal clothes on – let them run carefree and worry about the cleanup later. It is good for their little hearts to have times of play where they can be messy.

If the day is a little too cool or there is lightening present, still take the children out into the garage or onto the covered porch with you.  Sit on chairs or on the back of the car and just watch the rain fall and let the kids play in the covered area.  The beat of the rain and the roll of thunder are completely different experiences when you are outside. The extra sounds will provide stimulation for the kids and the fresh air will renew your spirit.
