Rainy Day Fun

(Lovely yellow rain boots at Ralph Lauren)

Rainy days can put a damper on summer fun. There is always indoor trips to a museum or movie, but what if the thought of loading up the kids in the yucky weather does not appeal? Here are my best tips for a rainy day.
Get Crafty

Remember the project from Kindergarten where you write your name in glue, then apply beans or glitter? Check out this mega bean mosaic project!

Paint an umbrella to be used when jumping in the puddles!

Teaching Moments

Leave them wanting more while waiting for their homemade rain guage to fill up. Make your own rain guage here.
Tell the story of Noah's Ark. Endless rainy days make a great time to learn about Noah!


Scavenger hunt
Hide and Seek
Flash light tag

Acting Up

Talent Show
Crazy Clothes day
Make musical instruments out of stuff around the house
Have an indoor camp out
Make sock puppets and have a puppet show

I hope this helps to squash cabin fever during rainy days!
