About the activity
Splashing in puddles doesn’t have to be a short activity on the way home home from school – why not take the children out after the rain on a puddle‐jumping adventure?
Pull on some wellies and waterproofs and see how many puddles you can find. Which is the biggest? Which makes the best splash? Can the children hop through or jump over a puddle?
Get the children to look at the reflections in each puddle. What can they see? What happens when they drop leaves, sticks or stones into the water?
This activity is a great way for children to learn about the world around them, explore their senses and have fun in the great outdoors!
