Rainy Day Activities for the Whole Family

  • Have a Beach Day, at Home- Having a beach day at home may seem pretty far fetched, but it’s not. Grab your favorite beach towels, put your bathing suits on, pack a picnic and build castles with blocks. If you are feeling a little warm at your indoor beach, why not cool off in the water? Run a bath and have the kids play in the tub with their bathing suits on.
  • Go Camping Indoors- Who wrote the rule that camping has to be outside? If you have tents already, you can set them up inside your house and fill them with pillow, blankets and sleeping bags. If you do not have tents, use some large sheets to create your own tents. You can even put the fireplace channel on your television and sit around a campfire. Don’t forget your flashlight, scary stories just aren’t the same without one!
  • Bake- Who doesn’t love fresh out of the oven stuffed chocolate cupcakes? No one, that’s who. Set to work baking your favorite recipe as a family! Why not change the recipes up a little and let everyone each pick their favorite add-ins? Have a taste testing of everyone’s creations once they are baked.
  • Go outside- There is no rule that says that just because it’s raining, you have to stay inside.  Go splash around in some puddles, dance in the rain together and enjoy yourselves! Just make sure to have some dry clothes ready for when you go inside.

There are many different ways to enjoy yourself when it is raining. Make the most of your rainy day with some rainy day activities for the whole family, there is no need to let the weather hold you back!
