    Default 10 Rainy Day Activities

    do for those cooped up indoors all day!

    1. Get out a craft box. If you don't have one, here's some idea's of
    what to put in it (stuff you have at home, or can get cheap!)
    - Popsicle Sticks
    - Glue Sticks
    - White Glue (Elmer's style)
    - Tubes of Glitter
    - "sheets" of felt
    - A pad of construction paper
    - pipe cleaners
    - googly eyes
    - random feathers
    - water colors & brushes
    - magnet squares or a roll
    - crayons & markers
    - wooden shapes to paint or color
    - Toilet paper & Paper Towel tubes
    - Scraps of wrapping paper
    - Tissue Paper

    With all of that stuff, your little ones can make a multitude of
    items, including popsicle stick houses, face masks,
    crowns, "binoculors", spy glasses, magnets, color a picture, make a
    picture frame for it, make finger puppets, and much more. Set em
    loose on the kitchen floor for a large surface that is easily
    cleanable. Purchase a cheap dollar store plastic table cloth for
    even easier cleanup.

    2. Make a tent in the living room. Drag out large sheets and light
    weight blankets. Have a picnic in the middle for lunch!

    3. Have a movie day. Make some popcorn up, find a favorite movie on
    TV or in your collection, or go to a video store and rent on cheap
    (or even free at some places!)

    4. Take a puddle stomping walk when the rain lets up. A little water
    never hurt anyone! Bring an umbrella, and wear clothes & shoes that
    can get wet, and stomp your way down the street.

    5. Take construction paper and make a nice bright "sun" to put on a

    6. Have fun baking something with help from the little ones.

    7. Visit the library.

    8. Splurge and go see a kids movie.

    9. Create a stuffed animal "zoo" to "visit". If you have a camera,
    take pictures!

    10. Play a board game or card game with your kids. Use treats like
    cookies to give to the winner.

    Hope this helps alleviate the rainy day blues!
