Things To Do On A Rainy Day

Every kid has one phrase in common when it comes to rainy days “I’m bored!” Here is a list of ten things to keep your kids occupied and having so much fun that they’ll forget about the rain altogether!

1) Make a family scrapbook
– Grab the scissors, glue, pictures, paper and glitter, it’s time to get creative! Print out your favorite pictures of each other on the computer and assign each other a few pages. See what everyone comes up with and put it all together to create fun family memories!

2) Cook together – Break out the cookbook and try a new recipe or teach your kids an old favorite. Make it an easy recipe that the kids can learn and pass down to their kids. The best part is the tasting the end result and sharing the fun.

3) Create a treasure hunt
– What do kids love more than finding treasure? Come up with a scavenger hunt that requires your kids to follow clues throughout the house and when they are done, have a piece of candy or treat waiting for them.

4) Do a science experiment – How much fun is a volcano made of baking soda and vinegar? Look up a few science experiments that can be done in the kitchen (without blowing it up!)

5) Go through old family photo albums – Laughter and tears can come from reliving memories found in old family photo albums. Kids love to look at themselves and make fun of old hair styles and outfits that their parents used to wear. So cuddle up on the couch and let the good times roll!

6) Do a photo shoot – Hair! Make-up! Lights, camera, action! You don’t have to live in Hollywood to get great pictures. Playing dress up and shooting photos that make your kids look like stars is fun for all and make great pictures to share with friends.

7) Make playdough – Making playdough that you can eat is a fun and delicious treat! Get creative with food coloring and kitchen utensils and get playing!

8) Watch old family videos
– How much fun is it to watch how everyone has changed?! Pop some popcorn, hit play and get ready for fun! Watching old home videos brings back memories that you’ll love to relive!

9) Create boxes to donate
– Go through your closets of clothes and toys and make boxes of stuff to donate to charities for children that really need those things that you don’t. This is a great time to teach your kids how to give and about sharing with those who don’t have much.

10) Carpet picnic
– Have lunch or dinner on the floor! So you can’t get outside and picnic in the park, make sack lunches and spread out a blanket in the living room! The ants and lies will be disappointed, but the kids will have a ball!
