We were just outside this weekend so my daughter could write on the front steps with her chalk. Unfortunately, it rained the next day and destroyed her creations but she knows we can get back to it once it stops raining.
Also, while waiting for the rain to stop, you can turn your kid’s attention to reading! These recommended outdoor books will not only improve your child’s early reading skills but will make them even more excited to head out the door and explore the great outdoor activities on this blog!
