Hey all... In my childhood days what we did usually after rain is(as follows)... There will be some water stagnant on road for some hours. We will take a paper and do a ship(might be a small boat..hmm... dunno exactly wat to say that LOL) and float it in water. We will watch how beautifuuly it floats there. Have you ever did it? U can try too...

I am gonna learn how to make paper plane from any streaming site. I hope it will be there. Usually in my schools and colleges too my friends were doing this, but I missed it to learn. Its not a big deal. Better late then never :)

One of my favourite memories from my childhood is the time my grandmother made me paper boats to float on the big puddles in the farmyard where she and my mother were working. They had stopped for lunch and she made the boats from green paper sacks.She cut her finger in the process and I was worried that she would have to go to the hospital for stitches as I'd had to go a few weeks earlier... but hers was just a tiny paper cut

Hmm... I don't think I've ever done that. I've watched people make paper ships and put them in lakes and creeks but never after a storm. I think it might be interesting to try that.

Yup I did during my childhood days. It's really fun because we have a contest that first boat comes to the finish line he/she is the winner. So we blow harder for our boat goes first...
