Fun in the rain

Next time it’s raining, don't stay inside and listen to the rain sounds. Put on a raincoat and wellies and have fun in a natural rain shower!

Once you're outside splashing through the rain, can you spot any animals or insects that you don't normally see when the sun is out? Look closely at the trees. Did you know that some leaves are made so that the rain glides off right off them? Try and see what you can discover around your home that looks different in the rain. Now sniff the air – the smell of rain is refreshing! That pleasant smell that usually accompanies rainfall is called petrichor.

Take a deep breath through your nose. What does the world smell like today?
