If youâ€™re going on your second or third day of rain, youâ€™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 donâ€™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 thereâ€™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. Thereâ€™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, youâ€™re finally out of the house as well.
What rainy day activity do you usually do with your kids?
