Smarter Mom: Rainy Day Activities

Posted by   + Show Post

If you’re going on your second or third day of rain, you’ve likely exhausted all those rainy day tricks you hide up your sleeve--or in your closet. (My secret rainy day stash includes new books, new toys, and rainy day crafts.) Lets think outside the box, or rather outside the home. No, you don’t have to play in the rain, but it's time to get out of the house.

The movies are always a great rainy day option if there’s a movie playing suitable for your kids' ages. Try to go to the earliest showing for discounted pricing. Museums are also good on rainy days, though can often draw crowds (especially rainy weekend days). How about bowling or ice skating? Or try an indoor pool at a local hotel, college, or health club; they frequently sell day passes. There’s also indoor kid gyms, which let kids run, climb, and jump around, which is a great way to blow off some steam.

Whatever rainy day, get-out-of-the-house activity you choose, be sure you enjoy yourself too. Afterall, you’re finally out of the house as well.

What rainy day activity do you usually do with your kids?

 we always color and do things with play doh.  I pull the easy bake oven out and let the girls go at it.

We play games at home, watch tv, crafts, they go play at their friends, or if it is warm enough they go play in the rain

 Indoor play, dress up, coloring, painting, beading, we like to make forts.  We eat "picnic" lunches on the living room floor.  We do dance parties, raining or not, lol!  Reading, movies, lots of stuff.

We sometimes just curl up and have a movie day. We also do puzzles, bake cookies, make forts, and pudding paint.

We brought out the mega blocks and the girls are playing while watching Yo Gabba Gabba.
