Introduce the classics
Introduce kids to rainy day classics like building forts with bedding over furniture, interior hide and seek, and playing doctor, using toilet paper to bandage teddy.
Inspire art lovers
Slice a potato in half and cut a shape onto the flat surface with a kitchen knife to make a stamp. Dip the stamp into paint and create away.
Get their wiggles out
Get their wiggles out with a dance party. Put on some high energy music and rumba, turkey trot, twist, or hokey pokey until everyone drops.
Involve the family dog
Involve the family dog in a new twist on the scavenger hunt. Have the kids hide doggy treats to see if they can stump Fido's keen nose.
Bring out the trash
Bring out the trash -- old boxes of all sizes, including cardboard tubes and paper bags, to transform into puppets, costumes, cars, castles, telescopes, box cities, and faraway universes with tape and crayons.
Head to town
Head to town when all else fails and the kids get grumpy. It may be time for a trip to the movies, museum, or library to restore spirits and bring back everyone's sunny disposition.
