It has been overcast and off/on raining here in Bisbee, AZ. A few weeks ago I asked the kids what they wanted to to the next day. They came up with some great rainy day activities:
Make a fort (out of blankets) and camp out
Play dough(follow this link for awesome homemade play dough that lasts for months http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,179,150174-239192,00.html ) I put the color in with the other ingredients, but then again I always take the short cuts…sometimes it’s not good :)
Picnic (backyard or indoors)
Go for a walk ( well that’s not so great for rain, but you can improvise…maybe an indoor treasure hunt…)
Finger paint (this works great right before bath time)
I thinks it’s high time we revisit some of these ideas. The kiddlets are restless, and I’m in need of some fun myself. Enjoy!
