Puddle Experiment

Try this puddle experiment with your toddler or preschooler.

Next time it rains, go outside (after it is done of course) and trace a puddle. Go back outside every 30 minutes to an hour and trace where the outside of the puddle is again. Ask your child, “Why is it getting smaller? How?”

This is great idea Nicole! :) And very, very cheap one that toddlers will absolutely love! Haven't met any who doesn't like to play with puddles! ;)

Thank you for adding this to last week's High paw. I only wish we see you there more often! You share great ideas!
