Did you know a child born in the UK today will spend almost a quarter of their life watching screen technology? I could not agree more. Every morning, Mr K will go downstairs and switch on the television to watch his Cbeebies or play iPad apps. When they get back after school, the first thing both children want to do is watch television or play games. They love to play in the garden or to play on their bikes but it is not always possible as it either raining or too cold. Just because the good old British Winter is back doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy fun activities indoors.
We have received a “rainy day activity pack”, which contains over 10 items such as elephant foam mask, a yo-yo, large balloon, puppet mouse, tracing book and other little great treats for us to use. It didn’t take us long to make use of these items. It has been raining cats and dogs for days now. So we have been playing with the mini fishing, pretending to be an elephant, blowing bubbles, playing with the balloon and playing with the puppet mouse. We’re grateful for this great rainy day pack. They are great! My children have had a lot of fun playing with these!
Our favourite rainy day activities are to:
- Play educational board games
- Play memory card games
- Painting and drawing
- Role play
- Puppet show
- Or to be creative with fruit! Mr K made his Mr Pear after watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.
So what are your favourite rainy day activities?
