Rain Art:

We can feel every creative soul dance in joy with the mention of this activity. Yes, this is a creative activity and an amalgam of both indoors and outdoors because you play it on your veranda.  It starts with the rain droplets on your veranda tiles, some colors, and beautiful rainbow colored picture. It is a simple activity that can be enjoyed by one and all in the family. You have to mix the color with the droplets on the floors and watch as it makes amazing patterns. To add a wow element in this activity and obviously, to make some memories, you can now take a paper sheet and put it gently on top of the colorful droplet. As you take the paper-sheet off, there is an incredible design on the sheet that you can get laminated as a memory. Do not forget to label it with the date and name of the artist.

Mudpie fight:

It sounds all messy, creepy and mushy; honestly, for outdoor nuts, these words point to a perfect time to enjoy and have a memorable time. This game is perfect to enjoy with family; make teams and start the game with a huge mud pie on your opponents face. You are definitely going to enjoy the shower and the slippery mud. However, we recommend finding an open ground with lots of mud to play this game, the lady of the house will definitely not want her backyard & walls covered with mud pies.

Boating competition:

No, no real boats; we mean the paper boats we used to make in our childhood days. Well, when did you last folded a paper to make something creative? When you were in Kindergarten; you must be kidding us!! Bring your inside child out and play in the rain as your paper boat leaves all another behind in a race. You can paint your boat or put a flag on it to identify & then find a flowing water stream on the side of the road or street and you know what to do next. You can set amazing prizes for the winner like a treat in their favorite restaurant.

Another messy outdoor rain activity from our creative satchel is about bursting the puddles. Simple to play; all you need is your gumboots and raincoat to get set go. Whoever bursts the more puddle wins the game.
