When your children want to play outdoors, you can’t go wrong with the shoes in Naturino’s waterproof line. A technical and innovative line that offers a wide range of shoes, boots and ankle boots, with super-warm fleece, wool and shearling linings.
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes – so grab your child’s waterproof shoes and raincoats and make the most of these fun rainy-day ideas for children.
Explore the great outdoors with laminated fact-filled bingo cards to help children learn to identify different plants, trees and wildlife, even in the city. Make sure to keep eyes peeled for creepy-crawlies that love the wet weather.
Grab your buckets and spades and take them outside for hours of fun, whether it’s making mud pies or digging over the allotment while the soil is soft and damp. Try creating prehistoric-looking landscapes for toy dinosaurs to roam.
Make a rain-gauge or water collector out of plastic bottles and use them as a starting point to explore eco-friendly ways to conserve rainwater for household and garden use.
Draw around puddles with chalk to create puddle monsters. Watch them evaporate and observe science in action. Use a stopwatch to time how long it takes for them to disappear – you can even turn it into a race.
If it’s really pouring, head indoors for a cosy time. Create a snug environment by building a pillow fort or den. Change into comfy loungewear for extra cosiness when playing board games and reading storybooks. Fairy lights add the final flourish.
Make popcorn (in a saucepan with a clear lid to make the most of the visual spectacle) and watch films while the rain patters on the windows. Naps almost guaranteed.
