April showers may bring May flowers but how do we find different ways to entertain our children on what it seems sometimes as never-ending rain? We have fun ideas to keep the kids active inside when you don’t want to go outside!
Keep bins of crafts handy for those occasions when it is raining out and you just want to keep the kiddos occupied inside. Organize bins with construction paper, crayons, colored pencils, stencils, stickers, markers, coloring books, paint and more!
Encourage them to read and play educational games to keep their brain active as well. Encourage them to use their imagination with the toys they have. Maybe they will find new interest in toys they haven’t used in a while or forgot they had. It is amazing what we find in bins on rainy days that hasn’t been touched in months!
For those that love to bake, a rainy day can be filled with making creative, colorful cookies, cakes or other fun food! Stock up on a few items to have on hand so you are ready for the next rainy day!
