When it rains, it pours, but you don’t have to sit around all day! Are you looking for new go-to ways to spend a rainy day? Here are some of our favorite activities that you can do with the kids, no matter where you are!
Get moving! Being inside doesn’t mean you can’t be active. With activities like fitFlow and fitBoost, all you need is a computer or smartphone and some space to move. You could also have a dance party with our fit Music Playlist or do a movement challenge using the Move ABCs printable.
Let those creative juices flow. Whether it’s an impromptu play or playing a game like Food Bingo, use some time to encourage creativity! If you’re looking for something for quiet time, try using coloring pages like the Healthy Foods Coloring Pages or the Positive Self-Talk Coloring Pages.
Take a look at a book. Whether you read aloud to the kids, or just page through a book on your own, nothing beats a rainy day and a good book. If you’re in need of family-friendly book ideas, check out this children’s book list series and pick out a new story or find an old favorite!
Enjoy some self-care. There’s no better time to have a self-care day than when you’re stuck inside. If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out this self-care article. Prioritizing yourself is never a waste of time, so block off some time and take care of yourself. You’ll thank us later.
Try a new recipe! A rainy day is a great time to test out a new recipe. Whether you’re baking or cooking, making food can bring warmth into your kitchen and put a smile on anyone’s face. Invite your kids to join and put a twist on an old classic, like adding whole foods into the recipe, or try something new!
