Rain Art!

We had grand plans to spend the day out, enjoying the awesome weather. We planned to go on walks, ride bikes, blow bubbles, make sidewalk chalk drawings, kick the ball around the yard and so forth.  When we woke up, the plans changed, as outside it was all rain, rain, rain!

So I sat the girls down and had them draw a picture on watercolor paper, using the watercolor pencils.  Once they were done with their drawings, I let them go outside and stand in the rain, which at that time had slowed down, so we didn't get quite the affect we were hoping for.
It was fun to watch the colors on the paper "melt" and mix with other colors.
