Rainy Day Fun: Tips to Keep Kids Busy
When skies turn gray and the rain falls, kids often find themselves bored and cranky. Try these creative ideas to help spur your imagination, boost everyone's spirits, and chase those rainy day blues away.
How miserable can it get? It’s raining. No shining sun to greet you. Perhaps you, like Sally and her brother in the popular Dr. Seuss book, Cat in the Hat, are assuming the day is ruined. Says Sally’s brother, “We sat there, we two. And I said, ‘How I wish we had something to do!’” Well, his wish was granted, and now so is yours (and we won’t even terrorize your pet fish or ruin your house in the process!)
Start by resisting the temptation to turn on the TV and vegetate on the couch. There is so much to do, to see, to learn, and to play; your problem isn’t going to be that you have nothing to do, but that you have too many things you want to do! Start off right with a good breakfast and plan your day. Here are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
