5 Fun Rainy Day Activities

Rainy days are the pits! You’re stuck inside and the kid’s keep saying “I’m bored.” Prevent those two grueling words with these 5 activities that will keep the kids moving when the weather isn’t cooperating.

  1. Animal Charades: Take turns pretending to be different animals then guess which animal that person is trying to be. This is a great way for children (& parents!) to use their imaginations and have some fun.
  2. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Use an old cardboard box to create something new. Breakout the paint and craft supplies to make a car, rocket ship, or event a boat! Click here for some fun, cardboard box craft ideas.
  3. Have a dance party or play Freeze Dance: This is a great opportunity to turn on your favorite The Little Gym tunes! Have a dance party to the fun music or play Freeze Dance by pausing the music and “freezing” when your child least expects it.
