Rainy Day Fun

There is nothing like snuggling up on the couch to read a good book or binge watch Netflix on a rainy day. The relaxing sound of falling water puts me into full blown do-nothing mode, leading to some of the best naps of my life. Too bad my two year old doesn’t feel the same.

 

I have always made it a priority to ensure my daughter spends plenty of time playing and doing hands-on activities while having small periods for watching TV or using her tablet. Rainy days are perfect times to create fun activities to keep your children entertained and make the best out of those little spring showers.

Here are a few of my favorite activities:
