Looking for some fun ways to stay busy during those wet and soggy spring days? Here are a few rainy day activities that will keep you busy and entertained.
Get Your Planters Ready
Even if it’s pouring rain outside, you can still plan and prep your garden. Use this time to plan out what you want to put in your garden beds and planters. If you’re unsure, we recommend searching online or browsing through garden magazines to see what you like.
Movie and Pizza Day
Rainy days were made for movies. Line up a few classics and get cozy while you curl up together for a day of pjs and movies. A good way to crank up the fun is by making homemade mini pizzas. The kids can help roll out the dough and add their own toppings to create their individual pizzas.
Bake Some Goodies
Nothing makes rainy days better than fresh, homemade baked goods. It’s a fun way to spend time together with the family, create some fun memories, and even teach the kids some useful life skills too. You can choose something fun and easy, such as cookies or cupcakes, or try out a new recipe that you’ve been dying to make.
Indoor Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts were always the best when we were kids. So when it’s rainy and grey outside, show your kids how much fun an indoor scavenger hunt can be. Pick up some treats, find the best spots around your home to hide them, and make a list of clues so your kids can run around and try to uncover them first.
Arts and Crafts
Let your imagination run wild with a creative arts and crafts day. When you get some adult time away from the kids, you can unwind and indulge with some painting, jewelry making, scrap booking, photography, knitting or anything else that piques your interest. Have fun and let your imagination guide you toward some creative projects.
Making forts is a fun way to spend an afternoon. Encourage the kids to get a little messy, using the pillows and sheets to create the best fort. You can help them set it up with some cozy lighting and blankets. Then they can enjoy play time, movie time or even nap time from their new fort.
A day filled with board games is not only a ton of fun, but it can also teach your kids some valuable life lessons, like teamwork, logic, communication skills, strategizing, and how to be a good loser and humble winner.
