What’s worse than a rainy day with nothing to do? When you have the kids all cooped up inside the house without many options, this can turn into one of the longest days ever. Kids needed to be constantly doing things and engaged in activities to feel like they are actively doing something; this can sometimes feel like a monumental task when you just can’t think of what activity you should even do. If the house is too small or too cluttered or too crowded, there are other options- this is where we come in. We don’t want another painful rainy day to pass. We have numerous activities that you can use at any given time.
A Little Rain Never Hurt Anyone
Besides the great indoor activities that we have at your disposal, it’s not such a bad thing to let the kids actually go out and play in the rain. I mean, we play in the snow at an alarming rate, despite the presence of cold and the likelihood that someone will get sick. It’s important to note that playing in the rain offers an entirely different experience and entertaining sensation that many kids, especially if they are quite young, have never gone through before. Really, it’s not as bad as it may seem. Put some rain boots on them and a jacket and send that out there to the nearest puddle. You’re guaranteed to see their eyes light up.
Quiet Indoor Activities
If you’re interested in giving your kids an experience that isn’t necessarily tied to a bunch of noise or movement, we have some quiet time activities that they’ll love. These activities don’t include a television but do require a bit of creativity. Whether it’s kneading play-doh or coloring a picture, sometimes the simplest activities are the ones that have the most meaningful impact. You may have an artist on your hands and you’d never know because you don’t offer the necessary paper and crayon solution to boredom. There are so many different options and ideas at your disposal on our website. You’ll never need another reason to want to pull your hair out because of your child’s boredom ever again.
Many of the activities that we have listed on this site also have some type of component that provides a subtle lesson in the unfolding. There are never too many times that we can stress the moral of the story or the point of a game. There are so many lessons to be learned in so many different places, why shouldn’t the way we play and how we play be one of them? Whether it’s the mechanisms of chess or how to mix watercolors from scratch, you’ll be teaching your child invaluable things about structure and adherence and creativity. There are so many things that children learn through every single moment of their young lives. Whether that be in actual educational environments or playing a game at home. Every little bit counts.
