Rainy Day Activities for Kids:
I stay at home with my 10 month old son everyday. We usually go for a walk and to the park to play every day. Well, its rainy today so that’s out of the question. Any fun indoor activity suggestions that I can do with my 10 month old? What activities do you do with your children when its a rainy day?
Where I live we get a lot of rain in the late fall, winter and early spring months. So I have learned to make the best of a little rain. Usually we throw on our rain gear, play in the puddles, go to the park/play ground or go for a walk. Of course rain being what it is, you can still only handle so much wet. So we do end up doing more indoor activities then normal that day. Things I Try And Plan For Rainy Days o Appointments (doctors, dentists, etc.) o Shopping (grocery, mall) o Play Dates/Groups o Special Cleaning Projects Things We Do On Rainy Days Indoors o Watch A Favourite Movie o Bake Cookies/Bread o Listen To My Kids Fav. Music (The Wiggles) o Sing Songs & Dance o Arts & Crafts o Play With Their Toys o Make A Blanket Fort o Read Books o Do Flash Cards o Blow Bubbles (Indoor Bubbles – Non Stick) As far as 10 month olds go why not play some fun music that your little one would enjoy. Something that he can dance to or do actions to (with your assistance of course). Another option is to pull out the arts & crafts. Do things like painting with hands or special shaped sponges. Bake something like cookies. Read some books together. Make a fort (I know my kids liked blanket forts at that age). Throw in one of your son’s favourite movies. Rainy days are just so blah! Its been raining here off and on most of the week. So we have the blanket fort set up and the colouring books laid out inside. =)
