 In Uncategorized

It’s raining! Do you have a go-to rainy day plan? Or is it a wing-it kind of situation? Whether you are prepared or not, it’s always nice to mix things up. And it’s great to have a list you can refer to in order to fill the time and not hear, “I’m so bored!”

Here are some ideas to help make the day more enjoyable and exciting.

The Little Ones:

The Middle Years:

  • Crafts – Your local dollar store usually has inexpensive supplies – keep a container of supplies on hand for those unexpected days at home
  • Write and perform a play (make the costumes and set)
  • Treasure/scavenger hunt – in the rain – take pictures or collect items
  • Make homemade pizza
  • Read a book
  • Write and illustrate a story
  • Write and perform a song
  • Play card games
  • At-home Spa/Salon Day
  • Fashion show
  • Dance party
  • Lego activities – After playing, picking up ALL the Legos is mandatory!

Tweens and Teens:

Rain can also mean Movie Day! Spend time enjoying a favorite flick or finding a new one – or two. Make the most of it and enjoy some popcorn while watching a few of the best rainy day movies of all time. Kick back in a blanket fort, decked out with comfy pillows and string lights.

If you want to impress the tweens and teens with your coolness, suggest movies that don’t make you look like a dork.

Put two-and-two together for a fun time – puzzles and podcasts

 Or, how about embracing the rain and heading outside?

  • Take a walk
  • Jump in puddles
  • Mud pies
  • Make paper boats and race them
  • Rescue worms
  • Sing

Whether inside or outside, there are many ways to enjoy the rainy day! So, the next time the weather doesn’t look so great, take a look at this list and plan something fun!
