How to be active in the rain

Just because it’s raining doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors. Here are some ways on how the whole family can be active outside on rainy days:

  • Jump in puddles. Jump over puddles, jump around puddles.
  • Splash each other.
  • Make paper boats and sail them down the sidewalk drain.
  • Catch raindrops in creative ways – on your tongue, hands, fingertips, toes or nose.
  • Go for a hike, walk around the neighborhood or head over to your local playground.
