Rainy Day Activities To Try At Home



Stuck indoors because it’s pouring with rain outside? Not to worry, there’s still plenty of fun to be had with the activities we’ve listed below. While a forecast of rain usually calls for pajamas and movie marathons, there’s no better time to give something new a try. If you’re looking for inspiration for yourself or the rest of the family, read on and see how to keep occupied!


1. Jigsaws 


Building a jigsaw as a family or even solo can be a simple yet rewarding activity. For those that have little ones to entertain, choose a challenging yet doable puzzle for kids and something separate for yourself. You can make a game out of it by seeing who can complete theirs first or if you’re alone, simply take the time to relax by building up the picture.


2. Cooking or baking 


Both cooking and baking can be great for those that want to learn a new recipe and make something delicious for the family to enjoy. There are heaps of fantastic and easy-to-follow recipes online, and you can even find tutorials on YouTube too. Whether you’re in the mood for a sweet treat or want to make a savory stew, there’s nothing better than cooking when the weather outside is grey. 


3. Construct a model 


Model building can be such a satisfying task but it does require a lot of patience. If you fancy yourself something a little different, head on over to ModelSpace to browse the range of awesome model building kits available. Whether you want to build your very own (non-lifesize) Mini Cooper or a little bicycle, this is a great unique activity to try at home when it’s raining. 


4. Create a photo album 


Have you got lots of photos lying about in boxes and you’re unsure how to display them? Grab yourself a cheap scrapbook and create an arty photo album of your own. Children will enjoy getting involved with this activity as they’ll also get to see their younger selves too! You can get a few different colored pens and papers to get creative with cutouts and more to decorate the pages. 



5. Video game tournament 


Video games can be perfect for a rainy day option especially if you have a household with children. Crack out the console and line up the games for an ultimate challenge! Of course, age-appropriate games should be chosen - we recommend any type of racing games which can be enjoyed by youngsters aged 4 years plus. To make it extra fun, use a blackboard for scoring and crown the winner with a fake crown too for a real sense of being the champion.


There are so many ways to enjoy a rainy day as you can see from the selection of activities above. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of thinking outside the box or the willingness to try something new. Next time the weather has you indoors, why not try something from the list above?
