In the morning we made delicious, amazing muffins (recipe coming soon!) and I let Carter help put in the ingredients and even turn on the mixer! He loved pushing the handle to turn on the mixer and was so proud of himself for helping!
After baking I asked if he wanted to help do the dishes, which of course he did because he loves playing in the sink! I let him “wash” for awhile and he had a blast filling each thing up with water and moving the water from container to container!
What rainy day would be complete without a movie? Our movie of choice, of course, Disney’s Planes (again). Pretty sure I’ve seen this about once per day for about 3 weeks now!
Rain days can lead to some pent up energy and since we couldn’t drive anywhere because of the ice we had to improvise some ways to expend some energy inside the house! For a fun game I created this activity dice! To play the game just roll the dice and your kids do whatever activity it lands on, as many times as you want!
All you need is: a square box (I used a tissue box), white paper, scissors, markers and tape.
Tape the white paper over your box. You may need to cut it to size here and there depending on the size of your box and your paper. Write your activities on each side with the marker and thats it!
Here are the activities ours has:
- Hop like a frog
- jump 5 times
- spin in a circle
- Fly like a bird
- Stomp like a dinosaur
- wiggle wiggle
Happy rain day! What are you favorite rainy day fun activities?
