Puddle me this

Puddles! What fun. Puddles are the ultimate proof of rain.

Adults try to avoid stepping into them while children step into them without fear!

There are so many rain-themed arts and crafts activities out there, but not very much focus on the puddle. It is because of this we chose the rain puddle as the star in this weeks' arts and crafts video. Additionally, they are so easy to make so we couldn't resist it!

Using an old cardboard box, some pape, and a few other tools, we made four rain puddles for use as prop in a dance class during an across the floor activity or in any other stepping over, jumping or leaping type of activity.


Take a look!

For now, though, if you are looking for a simple puddle based arts and craft project, then feel free to watch our video. You will be able to see how we made these four simple puddles of fun!

Oh Puddles,
