The enjoyment doesn’t have to end because of bad weather. Even if the weather prevents you from going outside, you may still have a lot of fun indoors on rainy days. For the following wet (or snowy) afternoon, have this list of things to do in your pocket.
Arts And Crafts
Make homemade playdough, some slime, or, for a more classic approach, use a coloring book. There are TONS of kid-friendly crafting ideas online, so don’t worry if you lack creativity. For more entertaining ideas, try searching on Pinterest.
Write A Letter
Everyone appreciates receiving old-fashioned snail mail. Make someone’s day by teaching your kids the significance of letter writing. Send some to everyone, including your grandparents, uncles, cousins, friends, neighbors, and anybody else who has a mailbox!
Play Video Games
If you have an Xbox, Nintendo Switch, or Playstation at home, you’re good to go. You may download a variety of games for iPads, iPhones, and Android devices on the Google Play AppStore if your kids want to add to their video game libraries.
There is no better time than a rainy day to read a new book. Book exchanges for you and the children can be arranged with family and friends or you can join your local library and download children’s eBooks that can be viewed on computers, iPads, and smartphones. eBooks are also available through Amazon. Get kids interested in a book series, as a hint. They’ll be more inclined to want to browse more if they read one.
Solve Jigsaw Puzzles
Have a few puzzles on hand. They’re fantastic to experiment with briefly. Toys with fewer than 50 pieces are best for young children under the age of 5. Jigsaw puzzles with much more pieces, such as the 120, 200, and 500+ piece sets, are manageable for older children. Make a call to relatives and friends and arrange a trade if you have finished all the family crossword puzzles on your own.
Get Up And Dance
Create your own Spotify playlists with the children, and then start dancing. For a dance party, pick various genres like boy bands, disco, or K-pop If your entire family starts dancing while you make TikTok videos, bonus points.
Put your kids to work cleaning, dusting, and folding clothes if they are truly bored, but make sure they enjoy it! As you clean the house, turn on some music and dance around.
Find Old Pictures And Albums
Uncover those old photo collections and have a peek at the past. Children enjoy hearing stories and gazing at old pictures. This is a terrific rainy-day diversion! With their own albums, they can express their creativity by embellishing the pages and covers.
If your children already have dress-up accessories, you can let them use those instead, but letting them free in your closet will be more fun! Your young one will enjoy playing in some of your outdated (but not favorite!) outfits, as well as some costume jewelry or accessories.
