Rainy days are all too common in the early spring months. Many families get frustrated with this occurrence, wanting to just get outside and enjoy sunny weather. Even though parents cannot control the weather, they can make rainy days a little more fun for everyone in the family.
There are a lot of ways to spend a rainy day that will make a family forget all about the bad weather outside. Anyone can use these ideas for some great indoor fun. Here are some fun indoor activities to beat the April showers blues.
Have a movie marathon
There are some movies that were just made for rainy days. Families can get together a collection of some of their favorites, or use www.directspecials.com to find some new movies to add to the list.
Catch up on some reading
Reading is one of those activities that often gets pushed aside too often when families get busy or overwhelmed by their daily lives. A day indoors is a great time to spend catching up on reading. This can be novelty books or the latest newspapers.
Tackle those neglected disasters in the home
Another task that often gets pushed aside is organizing and cleaning out those problem areas that everyone has in their homes. Closets, pantries and garages are the most common areas that get cluttered. Families can finally organize these spaces to feel instantly better.
Head to an indoor pool
Swimming is a favorite activity of many families on hot, sunny days. Instead of stilling inside waiting for the rain to pass, anyone can head to their local indoor pool for the same water fun they were looking for. Most cities have a local YMCA or other facility that people can use on a regular basis to get their swim fix.
Make up a new recipe
There is no better way to warm up the home and feel cozy on a rainy day than to spend some time cooking or baking. Families can make this activity fun by trying to make up a new recipe or alter their favorite recipes to be even better. This is a great way to create a new favorite meal the family can enjoy every week.
Break out the board games
Board games are a classic family favorite that work perfectly any day of the year for all-day fun. Every family can use their traditional favorites, or buy a new game that will test and challenge
everyone. Many families like to use games that challenge memory or other skills to make this day a learning experience that everyone can enjoy.
Have an at-home pampering day
A favorite for the ladies in the home is always a home pampering day. Girls can create their own DIY versions of their favorite spa treatments, complete with facials, manicures, and massages. Even though they may be resistant at first, many boys will also love these little pampering moments as much as anyone else.
