What are Some Good Rainy Day Activities?

It’s been raining the past two days here in Florida, which always makes for some “interesting” times.

No going to the park, no playing outside, just stuck inside the house.

And although the husband and I head out to work, baby girl is still stuck inside the house with her abuelos.

So, what are some good rainy day activities?

We usually spend some time reading, coloring, watching some movies, etc.

Baby girl also loves to have her picmics (translation – picnic). Picnic? On a rainy day?

Yes, picnics. We lay out a blanket in the middle of the living room and eat our snack or just sit down and read.

She loves picmics so much that she will go and grab a blanket and her plate and set it all up.

In short, the idea is just to keep her entertained – however we can.

If you need some more ideas, here’s a pretty good site full of rainy day activities. I especially want to try out the felt storytelling board – looks like fun!

What are some of your rainy day activities? I’d love to get more ideas. 🙂

Rain is not required for this…I put dish soap in the sink and make LOTS of suds, then fill plastin bowls with the suds, add plastic cooking spoons and hand them to the kids (it used to be my kids, now it’s my grandkids) I give them dishtowels to clean up spills and they have a wonderful time!

That’s a great idea!
