Build a Fairy House

 

 

Making fairy houses is pretty simple stuff. So simple that I thought I’d give it a try while vacationing in Yosemite National Park recently with family and friends, including twin girls the same age as the big explorer.

I gave each of the kids a bucket and told them to gather up some items from nature that they could use to build a house for the forest fairies. In Yosemite, our backyard is a basically a forest and meadow, so there was plenty to choose from.

Rain art

 

We love playing outside in the rain. Provided there is no lightening or any torrential downpours to threaten our safety, we welcome the chance to jump in puddles, play in mud and enjoy the wet weather.

During one particular downpour this winter, we decided to try something new: Rain art. The idea is simple: Sprinkle a few drops of food coloring on a paper plate, then gear up and head outside with plates in hand.

Thank goodness we enjoyed our gorgeous leaves yesterday because today they're turning to mush under all the rain! No matter, we've got PUDDLES to splash in!

A sudden downpour doesn’t have to mean the end of outdoor fun. When Mother Nature (literally) rains on your parade, don’t take your kids inside. Do one of these fun rainy-day activities instead, and see how much fun you can have getting wet. You may even feel like a kid again yourself.
