The Lovereading4Kids comment
A celebration of the outdoors and all the fun things you can do in it in all kinds of unpropitious weather! There’s practical advice about how to build a shelter and make a fire so that you don’t get too cold when you’ve got soaked to the skin but there are also loads of creative activities such as making a natural umbrella from a leaf and decorating it with feathers and flowers or making snow animals – including a charming snow porcupine. Armed with this, families may feel less dread when faced with a really wet holiday!

The Wild Weather Book Loads of Things to Do Outdoors in Rain, Wind and Snow by Fiona Danks, Jo Schofield
It's raining outside - let's get out and play! Don't huddle cooped up indoors on a bad weather day: wrap up in warm clothes or waterproofs and get out of doors for some fun. In this book Jo Schofield and Fiona Danks offer myriad suggestions for wild things to do outdoors on wet, windy and snowy days, including: - Rainy adventures (e.g. go swimming in the rain; test out your fire-making skills - can you make a fire in the rain?) - Get creative (e.g. make a rain shadow; make an igloo; paint with natural paints made from wet mud, wet berries, wet charcoals) - Play bad weather games (e.g. slip and slide; watermelon rugby; ice hockey) - Experiment with weather (e.g. make a rain trap; make boats and float them on puddles; make a wind whirler out of a plastic bottle) - Just have fun! (e.g. do a rain dance; make rain drums)
No more huddling by the fire with these 72 surprisingly appealing suggestions for wild things to do in wild weather The Bookseller
