"Doctor Foster went to Gloucester,
In a shower of rain;
He stepped in a puddle,
Right up to his middle,
And never went there again."
- "Doctor Foster," English nursery rhyme, 1844

Have you ever played in a puddle? Most puddles are left behind by rain. They can also form near underground springs, on beaches when the tide goes out, from snow melt, or from man-made sources such as a fire hydrant or backyard watering hose.

They may attract small animals that desire to drink the water, or creatures such as frogs and mosquitoes that lay their eggs there.

When children play in puddles, they often wear raincoats and wellington boots. These waterproof articles are often brightly colored in yellow or red; they may also sport popular characters, such as the mud-puddle-loving Peppa Pig.

Then, use additional curved lines to draw the hair, eyebrows, upper and lower eyelids, nose, and smiling mouth. Between each set of eyelids, enclose a partial oval to form the eye. Within each eye, shade a large circle to indicate the pupil.
