5 Easy Rainy Day Activities

It’s been an extremely dry winter here in southern Colorado and this rainy week we’ve been having is SO needed. However, It does give me a bit of cabin fever! So i’ve been making it my mission this week to get creative with activities for Asher and I so we don’t go bonkers! I thought I would share some of my ideas with all of you just incase you find yourself on the verge of bonkers ; )

  1. MOVE! – Dance parties are one of our personal faves , so we crank the tunes and dance around. Asher gets a kick out of my “awesome” moves and loves to boogie himself!             * Added bonus is the cuteness!*
  2. Change up your routine- Do some “out of the ordinary” things like : Eat breakfast on the floor picnic style, or play with a new toy, let your little help with a chore or make a treat together.
  3. Get out!- Ok, yes… I realize it’s raining…. but go outside. Sit on the porch or go to a place in your town that has a covered outside area. Take some toys and play! The fresh air and change of scenery is great for you and will help SO MUCH with keeping you sane!Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

4. Visit the Library – Asher and I frequent the library . We go to story time a few times a week ( confession: i enjoy it just as much as he does) and on rainy days we go play in the children’s room! He loves it and its a nice change for him. Also, check your local library for events! We recently got to meet Elephant and Pig( from the Mo Willems books)  and it was a blast!FullSizeRender5. Pinterest!- DUDE! If you are not one of the millions using Pinterest… what rock have you been hiding under!? j/k! No .. but really!? JOIN! It’s amazing , and at times… a lifesaver! There are a million ideas for activities and craft ideas for every age! A rainy day must!

What are some of your “Go -To” Rainy day activities?
