    In May, our monthly theme is Rain.

    Based on the alphabet, can you think of a activities or objects related to rain, rainy days or puddles?

    Let’s go!

    Because I want more people to jump in the game, I will ask to NOT post two consecutive answers (unless there is a 24 hour period without answer since it could mean we are stuck)

    (remember: only ONE answer per letter, to give us more options for seconds if we get to that point)
