Most people associate rainy days with spring weather that
has long since left us this year. But the truth is that rain can come at any
time and during any seasons, and can leave an unprepared family stuck inside
with nothing to do.
This year then, don’t let a little bit of inclement weather
keep you from having fun with the little ones in your life. Instead, make sure
to always be ready for these eight fun rainy day activities that will help
ensure that you have a blast.
1. Make a Board Game
Does your family love to play board games with one another?
If so, spend some time during the next rainy day making one of your own. You
can model your new board game off of one of your favorites, or create something
entirely new from your imagination.
2. Build a Fort
This classic activity is a must-do during the next rainy
day. Grab some pillows, some blankets, and some chairs, and create an in-house
fort that you can hide in until the rain goes away.
3. Create an Indoor
If your kids have seemingly endless energy, you can try to
tucker them out by creating an indoor obstacle course using toys, furniture,
and other items in the way.
4. Make Your Own
Percussion instruments are so easy to make: all you need is
a mason jar and a lid, as well as some beans or rice. You can experiment with
different containers, and see what sorts and amounts of food make the best
5. Hold a Fashion
If your little ones love to get all dressed up, the use the
day stuck inside as the perfect opportunity to host a fashion show. You can all
wear your favorite outfits, and parade across the house for all to see.
6. Write a Book
When the rain starts falling, you should have ample
opportunities to start writing a few stories with the little ones. And
depending on how long the rain shower lasts, you may even have time to
illustrate it and bind it with household arts and crafts supplies.
