Rain, rain go away… Need some ideas for how to liven up your next rainy day in with the kids? Well you’ve come to the right place, just because it’s gloomy outside doesn’t mean your day has to be gloomy too! These five tips for fun activities on a rainy day are perfect for families searching for fresh things to do, all you need to bring is your imagination.
Tip #1: Create your own cinema – Let your kids pick out their favorite films and enjoy a delicious bowl of (homemade) theatre popcorn. One of the best perks is that you’ll even get unlimited, free access to the concession stand!
Tip #2: Bake a sweet treat – Who can resist warm, freshly baked cookies? Remember, a baker’s dozen never hurt anybody right? You can never go wrong with chocolate chip, but use whatever cookie dough you have on hand - you can even show your kids how to make some from scratch. Once you pop the cookies out the oven and let them cool, pour a tall glass of cold milk and dunk away!
Tip #3: Build an indoor tent – Camp out, without all the bugs! This fun activity is enjoyable to put up together with your family and even more fun when you get to use it. Set up in your living room and have an adventure your kids won’t forget!
Tip #4: Play dress up – Pull out your coolest pair of duds and make a fashion statement! Who can put together the funniest outfit? Get creative and put those old Halloween costumes to good use.
Tip #5: Go on the ultimate treasure hunt – Create a set of clues for each family member and pass them out so each person knows what to look for. Everyone can play individually, or you can all join the same team and discover the treasure together!
