Have You Tried?

Puddle peeking

a pile of orange leaves

The puddles left behind by fall rainstorms allow us to look at the fall foliage by looking down. Stand at the edge of a puddle, across from each other, and look in. You will, of course, see each other (make sure to wave) and the sky above. You might also see trees, falling leaves that might look like they are ‘falling up!’, clouds, birds, buildings, sun and more. Go back in the evening and look for the moon and stars. Wait until after the next rainstorm and see if your same puddle is still there. Look in – are there different ‘pictures’ inside the puddle?
