    • If your child enjoyed the bubbles keep this going- have them wash baby dolls, plastic animals, legos, etc.
    • Put water in small tubs (restaurant take out containers or Tupperware) with plastic animals, legos, etc and put in freezer for a fun activity later in the week
       3.  Raining days are a good day for an inside Scavenger Hunt.
