Last weekend it poured here. I have three very active kids who like to play outside. They were disappointed when they saw the rain on Saturday after nap. The disappointment ended when their daddy pulled out some paper and started making boats.
After Jon finished making the boats they all put on their raincoats and tromped outside. They spent a happy 20 minutes floating and racing their boats in the small river on our street. Owen even wore his brand new "rain hat."
They also learned that boats made from aluminum foil float much better and take a lot longer to sink than boats made from newspaper.
