Across the country, rain is a common occurrence. Here, in California, every year is different and so far we have only had a handful of rainy days. Because of this, we tend to be under prepared for indoor activities. This is why I am putting together a short list of our favorite things to do on rainy days so I can look back when my children are getting stir crazy.
- JUMPING IN PUDDLES: This is our favorite thing to do and with the right rain gear, they can go for a long time.
- DANCE PARTIES: This is a great way to get out the wiggles.
- MAKE SLIME: There are so many slime kits available that have step-by-step instructions and will keep Kolton and Shayne busy for at least an hour.
- GO NOODLE APP: Go Noodle has so many fun activities including yoga, dance moves and educational fun. This can be a life-saver for those indoor days.
- MAKE A FORT: We had so much fun building forts with JumpOff Jo. Check out my previous post HERE!
I am sure we will have more to add to this list with each rainy day. What are your favorite rainy day activities? Respond in the comments below.
Dance party and slime is also our go to activities!
You can’t go wrong there! How old are you little ones?
I have never thought to jump in puddles but the kids would love that. Something so simple yet fun
Yeah! My kids love jumping in puddles! But it is all about having the right rain gear.
I love rainy days. Me and my kid loves to go running in the rain. 🙂 Better than being bored at home 🙂
We do too! As long as it is not freezing cold rain!
When I was a kid I used to go for dancing parties and making slime with my mom.
My 5-year old daughter and I play monopoly. 🙂 It’s a nice game as she learn the idea of money.
I have heard great things about the go noodle app! I love that it helps get kids moving.
I love rainy days. Dance parties are where it’s at! Also cuddling up with a good book is my fav but I guess that’s much harder with kids.
This article brought back some old and cherished memories. Talk about jumping in puddle, I will still do it if I get a chance. Fantastic post
Keeping kids entertained when cabin fever hits is no easy task. Thanks for sharing these fun and easy ideas!
Dancing in the rain……o I missed it already……
Nice roundup of things to do with kids on a rainy day. Love the dance party idea.
Though am not a huge fan of rainy days, I tried to keep myself entertained like binging for movies and eating a lot!
I love rainy days and even enjoy dancing in rain till yet. hahahah.
I am from Vancouver. Rain is all we have! 😀
Makes me want to have kids already. haha
I loved jumping in puddles when I was a kid. I like it to do now as well to remind myself of how such siplme things can bring joy into our lives.
I would want to make a fort! Forts are kids ultimate dream but dancing in the rain never grows old and is forever gonna be missed! Great post, made me so happy inside!
This is really nice! I live in a country where it always rains.
