Today was cold and rainy for us, so when I saw so many great indoor activities shared on Tuesday Tots, I was inspired to compile a list of Rainy Day Activities to keep us busy the next time we’re shut indoors.  We hope you find it helpful, too!  There are quiet, fine motor activities, activities to get the kids moving and practicing gross motor skills, and even a fun rainy day snack you can make together!  You might just find yourself looking forward to the next rainy day! 🙂

    Great round up, Genny! I love that balloon hockey post! That’s going to be a great alternative to mini-sticks (which I’ve had to pack away so no one gets hurt). Thanks so much for featuring our Construction Set!

  • Good idea for the Round Up, we can all use extra ideas for Rainy Day Activities as Spring is approaching. Thanks for featuring my mini-trampoline video.
