Rain, Rain, WON’T go away??

It’s a rainy day and the kids want to play! OH NO! What are we going to do?

All children love to go outside and play; whether they play with a ball, a bicycle, the jungle gym, or simply inside the sandbox. When the rain comes down, that just allows us to put on our thinking cap to find something else to do. Don’t worry I have a few ideas that could work those gross motor skills that can be done inside that are just as fun!

Some general tips to keep in mind when creating activities are:

  1. Activities should be short and brief.
  2. Keep activities age appropriate.
  3. Limit activities to small groups versus large ones.
