The kids have been back to school for a while now and it won’t be long before summer is over. Fall is a time of transition for children in areas where four seasons truly exist. The weather changes frequently. One day its winter cold, the next day it’s sunny and near 80 degrees. We pull our patio furniture and backyard toys out of storage one day to only store them back the next. It just may be pouring down rain the next day. Back in June, I came up with some alternative activity ideas for the summer and this time, I’ll give you some ideas about family activities for a rainy day.
Younger children have a harder time adjusting to the rapidly changing weather patterns as Fall pushes its way into our region. So here are some additional fun playtime ideas my family enjoys during this rough transition. Feel free to steal an idea or two for your own fun!
There are tons of fun crafts you can do with your children that are easy and cute too. Check with a local craft store for pre-packaged craft supplies or use your imagination to help your child create their own masterpiece with a little bit of construction paper, glue, and fun beads or buttons. The sky’s the limit when it comes to crafts.
