Fun Filled Rainy Summer Days


Whether they’re in school or at home, all winter long children are stuck indoors. During the winter months children long for summer when they’ll be able to play outside, soaking up the hot summer sun, all day long. This is why it’s such a challenge to keep children occupied indoors on rainy summer days. 


You should always have fun games and activities close at hand for these types of days. With kids, the more interesting and unique the activity is the better. Below are some things you may want to try next time it rains this summer.
  • If you have empty boxes lying around, stack them on top of each other then spread a blanket over them, making a fort. Let your child make designs on the boxes using stickers, markers or anything else you can think of. This gives them their own hiding place for the day or week, where they can store some toys or maybe even sleep. You can even buy fort building kits, like Crazy Forts, which allows children to use their imagination in building their own unique structure.
  • Play a board game. has some unique games like The T-shirt Game, where players choose the best slogan for a t-shirt; Blunders game, which teaches children about good manners which they’re having fun; or play Pears in Pears, a fun word game for ages six and up. 
  • Build a puzzle.
  • Play an old fashioned game of hide and seek, or I Spy.
  • Have a picnic. Spread a blanket out on the kitchen or living room floor, and eat lunch.
