Rainy days are never fun and a lot of time end up with at least one child saying, “I’m bored!”
The best way to solve that is have a few things to do for the day to keep the children busy!
Here is a easy list of some ideas that you and your children can do together.
Rainy Day Activities:
Indoor Camping ~ My siblings and I use to do this often indoors. We did it with chairs and sheets or using thumb tacs to hang up sheets on our walls. We use to cover one end of the livingroom to the other with sheets and placed our pillows down for comfort. We would colour and eat under there. Even watch a movie while laying under there. You can also use an small dome tent if you have one. And set it up inside.
Board Games ~ When I was a kid I loved playing Monopoly on a rainy day. Turn off all electric devices, get some drinks and snacks and play some board games! Fun for the whole family and memories that will last a lifetime! No board games in your home? Get a pen, paper and a hat. Write out words and put them in a hat (movies are also good) and play charades!
Baking ~ Check to see what you have on hand and bake something with the kids. Take it a step further and have them help make supper. A great way to teach them what goes in to preparing a meal. It doesn’t have to be a fancy supper. Do something as simple as sloppy joes with cupcakes for desert!
Movie Day~ Pick a few movies out and sit down with popcorn, snacks and drinks. Enjoy the movies together. (I love doing old 80s movie days)
Have a Tea Party ~ Have each child bring their favourite doll or stuff animal. Make sandwiches & cookies. It doesn’t have to be tea, it can be milk in the tea cups.
Colouring~ Sit down with some crayons and colour with the kids. Put the finished products on the fridge! Check the Crayola website for free colouring pages you can print. CLICK HERE to go to the site page
Treasure Hunt ~ Hide some objects around the house. (limit the amount of rooms to make it easier. ) Give the children a list of clues. Older they are the harder the clues.
