Looking out the window at the rain and gloomy sky has got me thinking we need to update the boys wardrobe appropriately! I predict lots of splashing in puddles and us letting them play outside regardless of the weather just to have a moment’s break from the bickering and to ensure they have burnt off some energy before bedtime. Boys seem to need to keep active, to run fast and climb, jump and challenge everything around them!
So if I am going to let them play in the back garden in a bit of rain, they at the very least need to be wrapped up well! The last thing we want is snuffles, colds and coughs because I let them get soaked through.
We live miles from proper civilisation so I rely on the wonders of online shopping for most of our purchases, so Muddy Puddles looks good to get my two equipped and sorted to be out whatever the weather.
I especially need to get the boys wellies ordered fast as the other day youngest jumped into the sea in his trainers, they did not dry off quick enough and were soon stinking out the house! What is it about wet trainers… we had to throw them in the bin in the end, after admitting defeat! The good thing is my boys share trainers and clothes as despite being 21 months apart are quite similar sizes in clothes and shoes, so eldest donated his spare pair to youngest! But to save this costly business they need suitable footwear for our outdoor adventures.
After all its rain more than shine here. However there are often different things to see in the rain; certain bugs are more likely to come out like snails and worms, so you could have a bug spotting session. Alternatively you can come up with some rainy games! They have given me some new ideas, so I cannot wait for our wellies order to arrive and to head outside.
