As parents, we have control over many things, but Mother Nature isn’t one of them. We’re not meteorologists nor do we have supernatural powers to change the weather forecast. However, we have the ability to turn those frowns upside down when tackling bad weather days. Don’t stress about your kids feeling restless because we have the survival guide of boredom busters below:

  • Simon Says: Bring back childhood games from when you were growing up (example: Simon Says, Duck, Duck Goose, Hide-and-Seek)
  • Make Believe: Whether they’re wearing their favorite Disney princess or pirate costume, have your child get into character and act out their favorite scene from a movie
  • Bob The Builder: Have a Lego competition of who could build the best replica of your house 
  • Mini Picasso: Don’t have a coloring book on hand? Download and print color sheets for kids to paint or color in
  • Science Lab: Use pantry items to conduct experiments such as making slime and magic milk
  • You’ve Got Mail: Have your kids write a letter to a family member or friend and have them decorate the envelope 
  • Bake Shop: Teach your children the joys of baking with kid-friendly recipes. Measuring can be fun and messy!
  • Not Bored Games: Take a break from screen time and go old-school with classic board games (examples: Candyland, Operation, Guess Who?) 
  • DIY: Bring the bowling lanes to your house by using recycled bottles as pins 
  • Pump Up The Jams: Play DJ and turn up the beat to get the little ones on their feet
  • Abracadabra: Look up fun and easy magic tricks to get your young magician started 
Trust us, these activities will have the kids doing the rain dance for more indoor fun.
