Spring is a beautiful time of year. Flowers start to bloom, the kids play outside more, and the flip flops and shorts come out. But with the beginning of spring, comes more rain. And with rain, comes the occasional indoor blues.
Before you and the kids start to get a little stir crazy, have some rainy day plans set up in advance. If you have a list of things to do (and a supply list if necessary) all ready to go, then you don’t have to sit around wondering what to do when the rain sets in.
Here are a few things you can put on your rainy day fun list:
– Board games. We set aside a couple of board games so they don’t get played regularly, that way they aren’t mundane or repetitive when they are pulled out on a rainy day.
– Art projects. If you find yourself at a loss for what kinds of artsy things you can do, invest in some “how-to” books. How to draw, how to paint, crafts to make with things around the house; all of these types of guides are well worth their cost (even better when you can find them used or on sale!)
– Science Experiments. Again, if you need them, you can find great science experiments books for all age ranges.
