The saying “April showers brings May flowers” is true most times so let’s prepare for more rainy days ahead! It’s raining, it’s pouring, your day feels really boring…does this sound familiar? Sometimes when rain cancels outdoor fun events such as games or park time you find you are at a loss of what to do if stuck indoors. You could curl up with a great book or binge-watch an entire season of something, but sometimes you want different, fun things to do at home with the family. Here are some great ideas for family fun indoors on a rainy day!
Find that treasure!
If children are in the house, help keep their day lively with a treasure hunt. Make one set of clues for every player (try rhyming the clues for fun), each clue leading to the next one and, finally, to the treasure at the end. Seal them in envelopes marked with a clue number to help the treasure hunters keep track. Whoever solves the clues and find the treasure first can win a small prize or even set up the next treasure hunt for the others to find. Uncovering treasures around the home can be a fun and lengthy game to pass the time! Have fun with it!
Build that fort!
Who says tents have to stay outside? Build a family fort or even set up a tent indoors. Setting up the camp scene can also lead to more family fun like a family movie or story time. Furniture, blankets, and even flashlights…camp in the great indoors for some fun time together!
Put on that Apron!
When raining outside, some can be inspired to cook or even bake some yummy goodies for all to enjoy. Baking cookies can be a fun family event or even going that extra mile to prepare a big dinner while stuck indoors. Make sure to plan ahead for this and keep extra baking supplies on hand for that rainy day.
There are so many other great ideas for rainy days including art, games, and even enjoying a good nap! Rainy days can be a good reminder to slow down from the hustle and bustle of normally busy plans so if given the chance try to relax and let mother nature make the plans. If not, don’t forget the rain boots and umbrella.
