This one is pretty straightforward…if you put sidewalk chalk into puddles, it gets sciency pretty quick…
Why stay inside during the rain? They don’t mind being that wet, and even colder, at the splashpad!
It runs down all your sidewalk chalk faster than you’ve ever seen, but as soon as they start colouring, they experience something they never have. They are quite immersed in this fun, creative learning experience, with their colours filling up different spots of larger puddles and getting mixed up.
Fun Tips for the Puddles
- Try drawing like normal sidewalk chalk
- Press sidewalk chalk down really hard while drawing
- Grind sidewalk chalk down in the puddle by rotating the heel or jumping
- Let the colours from different parts of the puddle mix naturally, by agitation, or by creating waves in the non-cloured water
