It’s raining, it’s pouring, kids are getting fractious! Top five ideas to lift everyone’s mood on a rainy day.
2. Go camping. Choose your site – behind the sofa or under the kitchen table perhaps? Set up base camp with old sheets or blankets. Add sleeping bags, teddies and an indoor picnic to complete the staycation.
3. Have an indoor disco. Put your favourite CD on and dance around the kitchen. Guaranteed to get everyone smiling. Spotify has all the tunes you could wish for online for free. My kids top favourite is Y.M.C.A. (or whyempseeday as they call it!) but I say you can’t beat a bit of ABBA.
4. Make an indoor cinema. Get cosy on the sofa with cushions and blankets, chill out and watch a family favourite DVD. We like Charlotte’s Web and the Jungle Book. Any other suggestions? To complete the home movie going experience why not make your own popcorn and sprinkle with some flavoured sugar. Yummy!
5. Make a life-size replica of your child! Draw round your child on a roll of paper and let them get creative designing their dream outfit.
