We are having a lot of rainy days at the moment, and though I am sure the gardens and trees of Perth are loving the wet weather, it is wearing a little thin on the home front! Mostly after school and on weekends, when my kids are climbing the walls at times because they are so BORED! Coupled with my love of tech free days at home, I’ve had to go old school with activities. Today I thought I’d share a couple of ideas that have worked a treat with my tribe:
  • Do a jigsaw puzzles – we love one brand - Djeco the best, the pieces are sturdy, the scenes are quirky, bright and interesting.
  • Play a board or card game – our current faves are Connect Four, Scrabble and Uno
  • Colour in – we always have a drawstring bag packed with colouring books, blank paper, textas , crayons, great for at home and when you are out and about
  • Work together on a mazes, dot-to-dots, and spot the difference (all great for 3-5 year olds) –  or for older kids try word searches and crosswords
  • Build a city or fort or zoo or paint a cubby! Go as big or small as you like! Start off with some little animals and get the kids to build the jungle/ ocean/ habitat or go large and convert the lounge into a tent city.  Add torches and a picnic and BINGO! Kid heaven!
Do you have a favourite rainy day activity? Enjoy xx
