What To Do on a Rainy Day

With spring officially here, we’re expecting lots of spring showers! With 5 kids – it’s not always easy to manage a rainy day. I thought it would be fun to do a What To Do On a Rainy Day POST for everyone to (hopefully) enjoy. I want to make sure we’re all armed with ideas to do for a planned or unexpected rainy day.

What To Do on a Rainy Day

What to do a rainy day

With 5 kids I can tell you firsthand without hesitation that rainy days stink! I hate having everyone “trapped’ at home. I like to be out and be about with my family. It’s not easy trying to come up with this to do with the kids when the weather is not super freezing (like the winters), but it’s rainy and nobody can be outside. I’m always looking for ideas and things to do when thinking about what to do on a rainy day. Rainy day ideas aren’t always the easiest to come up with for moms and dads!

When you have kids that range in age (we have kids that are 6 years old to 15 years old), you want to make sure you’re coming up with things that everyone can do! Indoor things to do aren’t always top of mind for everyone, but it IS possible to come up with some ideas. The most important thing is remembering that we all go through the question of what to do on a rainy day, even as adults!

There’s nothing I love more than the beach or walking through the park or biking our local bike path. When these things are taken off the table, it gets tough. I’m an outdoor kind of girl (as are my kids) so it’s important to always figure out answers to what to do on a rainy day!

These items aren’t in ANY particular order! They’re here just to serve as a guide to keep you ready and busy for a RAINY DAY! I want to make sure you have an idea as to what you can do during the rainy day. I think it’s super important to have things on top of mind for you to do! I love being able to be prepped!
