Remember the first time you saw snow, or rain, or touched the sand on a beach? Maybe not, or at least not vividly, but if these reactions of children (or puppies) are anything to go by, there is wonder and beauty in everyday things if only you put the heart into looking for it.

Watch these adorable reactions, and maybe approach the rest of your day with an open mind and ready heart.
