Rainy days can provide fun occasions for kids to explore. To paraphrase a quote from a song engrained on my mind from numerous episodes of Peppa Pig “jumping up and down in muddy puddles splish splash splosh splish splash”. Kids absolutley love it.

So rather than deny them it’s best to let them explore but with the best equipment at your disposal. A trusty pair of wellies alongside decent waterproof clothing will allow them to attack the puddles and mud but also staying warm and dry. A win-win for both child and parents
