>Let the rain paint you a picture!
Drop food colouring on a piece of cardboard or paper plate. Place the cardboard or plate in the rain. The rain will splash the food colouring, making it spread as well as make the colours mix. When the picture is as mixed as you want, pull it inside and let it dry.
Hint: if it is raining hard, the rain will splash the food colouring–be careful, it stains clothes.
Make this a family activity: Everyone makes a rain painting. Frame them and hang them on your walls.
This activity promotes creativity.
