Go on an animal hunt. There are lots of garden creatures that like to come out in wet weather, so why not go and find out what they are? Look out for slugs, snails, frogs, toads, worms, newts and even hedgehogs!

Rainy day idea:
Visit a museum. There are hundreds of museums all over the country and most are free to enter, or at a very small cost. So why not find out what's near you and learn something new whilst the rain pours?
