Since we’ve been having a run of rainy weather where we live, I thought it would be a great idea to pull together some fun rainy day summertime activities (and even one outdoor project that uses rain!) to help get you through those inevitable wet, summer days.
You’ll find a few kid-friendly recipes, some projects to give to others, and fun classic indoor games and activities to inspire you to take advantage of summer’s rainy days.
The best part? This is only the tip of the iceberg of summertime activities – both indoor and outdoor! You’ll find oh, so much more on our 100 Days of Summer Pinterest Board – 2013 edition. And if that weren’t enough, there’s the 2012 and the 2011 editions of 100 Days of Summer boards, too. So, no excuses – take some time to have fun with your kids and make some memories!
Here are some MomAdvice classics:
Create a Kid’s Cookbook
Make Whole Wheat Toaster Tarts
Create a Homeless Care Package and give it away.
Wow the kids with our famous diy Glow in the Dark Jello.
Cook up some cute Spaghetti Cupcakes.
And here are some more way cool activities to help beat the wet weather boredom (please be sure to pin from the original source I’ve provided- thanks!).
