Don’t let your children turn into couch potatoes when there are plenty of indoor activities for them to do. Growing up my favorite rainy days always included a game of hide-n-go-seek or some sort of craft project. But here are some of my favorite rainy days activities if you are looking for a little more excitement.

1. Crafts are always a fun indoor activity that both you and your child can enjoy. Some of my favorite craft kits come from Seedling. They have an array of choices for both girls and boys including make your own kaleidoscope & make your own snow globe. For girly girls I also love the paint your own tea set kit. The best part is that they can throw their own tea party after they’ve finished!

2. If you don’t want to spend too much money, DIY projects or baking are other ways to enjoy the indoors. Kidcrave.com offers different kid friendly DIY projects or cooking ideas in their weekly scoop.

3. Puzzles or science experiments are challenging & fun if you prefer that your child take advantage of educational activities.

4. For the wild child who can’t sit still the Brik-A-Blok Set will have them busy for hours. This set is perfect for building the perfect fort or playhouse.

5. For the older wild child an intense game of Battleship or foosball will keep them entertained for a while.
