Rainy Day Activities for kids

  • Have an indoor dance party. Turn the music up louder than you typically do, and dance in your socks and sweats. Or get competitive and challenge one another to a Disney Dance Party 
  • Try some Youtube exercise videos. There are videos for kids for Zumba, yoga, pilates, cardio, calisthenics and more. Or try this ABC exercise.
  • Build an indoor obstacle course. Try a book maze, spider obstacle course, crepe paper fun, climb/crawl/do course, or an alphabet maze.
  • There’s nothing wrong with playing IN the rain! Cover up from head to toe in your driest rain gear and have fun splashing in puddles. Exploring the mud with a mud slide, mud painting, or mud soup. Plus kids will love these rainy day bubble wands . A warm bath afterward will make everyone clean again! Or, if you don’t want to get messy, take a short walk with the umbrella.

Go Out!

If all else fails, get out of the house. Try taking a trip to your local library and pick out some new books to bring home.

Go visit someone! If you know someone that would like some company, give them a call and see if you can drop by for a little bit. Take them a homemade treat or a craft the kids made. Or, take a trip to your local church, a nearby children’s home or nursing home, food bank or just visit an elderly neighbor, and ask if there’s any volunteer work you can do as a family.

If the wiggles have gotten the best of your children, sometimes facing the risk of germs is a necessity. Take an excursion to the mall play area or your local fast food restaurant that has a play place. Just bring along the hand sanitizer.

Rainy days are the perfect days to go visit your local art or history museum, or places like your local Children’s museum or Science Center. I bet you’ll find some other homeschool families who are remedying their own cases of cabin fever as well!

If the kids are really restless and you want to wear them out completely, take them to an indoor laser tag or trampoline park, or similar arena. They’ll have a blast and you can guarantee they’ll sleep well at bedtime – maybe even an early bedtime?!

Now that you’ve got plenty of ideas for your children to do when you’re stuck indoors on a rainy day, pick a few and give them a try! When the sun comes back out again, you and your children will feel like you’ve had a small vacation indoors and will be ready to hit the books. Got any other ideas to add to this?
