Here in Central Texas, we have been facing one of the worst droughts on record. When I heard the pitter, patter of rain on my windows, Miss E and I tore out of the house to play in it. I didn’t care that I was still wearing my pajamas without a bra because I suspected this moment may not last long.
Miss E and I ran around our driveway shrieking with joy and excitement. Not only were we enjoying the wet drops on our bodies but the coolness of it was a welcome relief from this summer filled with 100 + degree days.
The rain lasted just a few minutes, but we still had a puddle filled driveway. We love to draw with chalk, and I thought it would be fun to draw on a wet driveway.
She swirled the chalk around on the wet surface mixed many colors together.
She moved and danced along the different chalk drawings.
Miss E made chalk foot prints.
She created beautiful art with the chalk, water, and her feet.
She delighted in being covered in chalk.
Playing with chalk and water is a wonderful sensory, art, and movement experience for children.
