14 Simple Indoor Activities For Snowy/Rainy Days

Indoor Activities
Pin It

About this time last year I had posted a list of 12 ways to keep your kids busy on a snowy/rainy day.  It’s crazy how different the weather is here this time around!  Although it’s not exactly freezing outside, we have a very rainy couple days in store and I know at least some of us are getting snow.  So I thought we could do another round-up of fun things to do indoors.  Again the idea is the same as last years: Activities and games that only consist of simple things most people have around their house.  Have fun!

14 More Ways To Keep The Kids Busy On A Rainy/Snowy Day

Phew! That should keep them out of your hair busy for at least a couple hours!

Thanks for the ideas you collected. I use them for when I have my 2.5 yr old grand daughter over. I have forgotten all the cool kid activities that I used to know. And thanks for the Pin It button so I can pin from Google Reader. Makes my a little easier and gets me off the computer faster.

You’re welcome, and I never thought of the pin it button on the reader, but yes that would make it easier! I will have to get that little guy on all of them :)

Great tips…may have to go for the mini weaving with my first grader who has a school holiday for teacher inservice today. Would be delighted if you’d link up to my brand new party:

Awesome and easy ideas! I’ve got two 2-year-olds, so this will come in handy. Thank goodness for Stumbleupon :)

One thing I’ve found out to help is I have a small collection of gaming cups, poker chips, dice, and several decks of cards. So I put them together with a journal I filled with rules for dice games, card games, magic tricks, and other things that keep little children busy. And the dice and card games, along with the magic tricks are easily found online for free. All told? 5 bucks together.

If you don’t have these things, thrift stores can supply you the parts dirt cheap, and decks of cards are very inexpensive. 1 buck for 2 decks of cards at Walmart.

Add listening to children’s audiobooks to that list. We put it on in the background while they play or draw. So much more engaging than the background noise of TV. There are lots of sites to download them from, but we use this one a lot because their stories are free and original. Here’s the link if anyone is interested. http://www.twirlygirlshop.com/stories-for-kids
