Rainy Day Activities

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

What do you do for fun on rainy days?

The late spring and early summer have been very wet in Western North Carolina. We have had lots of afternoons of pop up thunderstorms. This inhibits some of our outdoor activities. I need a plan B for the rainy days because I do not want the boys to spend lots of time on their electronics.

Do you have a list of rainy day activities? (This could be for any kind of inclimate weather.)

We love board games. A long version of Monopoly can make a rainy afternoon pass quickly. We also enjoy playing Rummicub, Uno, Sequence, Yahtzee, Sorry, Trouble, and more!

We have also worked on jigsaw puzzles and played with Playdough and Legos on rainy days.

If it is just a rain, the boys love to play in mud puddles. It’s not safe to do this during a thunderstorm though.

We also enjoy arts and crafts to pass the time on a rainy day. I keep a supply of markers, paper, paint, brushes, and more on hand.

Rainy days do not have to mean lots of TV time or electronics.

Today’s Zone Mission is to have a 27 Fling Boogie. Find 27 things to throw away or give away.

Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.

My menu plan for Thursday is chicken and a salad.

Have a great day!
