Save it for a rainy day by Neal on Flickr
I am going to make a collection of websites
that you might find passes the time on a rainy day.
Every year I ask the children in my class,
if you were an animal what animal would you be,
and why ?
We draw a picture of ourselves as that animal.
This results in some interesting self portraits.
Online I found an art activity where you can do something similar:
Draw a self portrait
and then make it even more original
by adding animal ears and tail etc.
Build Your Wild Self
I am reposting the following link
from earlier this year.
It contains many creative online art activities:

Try this one.
I think you will like it.

Here is another one:
Scribbler for beautiful pictures
As well as art there are websites where you can create your own music.
I like this one:

Just use your mouse to click in the small squares
and see what happens.
If you enjoy Word Games you will enjoy this site:

If you like playing with Lego,
you may like playing this:

What a summer! All that rain!

It rained and rained and rained and rained,
The average was well maintained;
And when our fields were simply bogs,
It started raining cats and dogs.
After a drought of half an hour,
There came a most refreshing shower;
And then the queerest thing of all,
A gentle rain began to fall.
Next day ’twas pretty fairly dry,
Save for a deluge from the sky.
This wetted people to the skin,
But after that the rain set in.
Looking forward to a good September.
A sunny start to the new school term,
would be good.
