💧9⃣ Fun Things To Do With The Kids On A Rainy Day - Amazing!💧

  • Have an Indoor Treasure Hunt
    Children in the house? Keep their day lively with a treasure hunt. Make one set of clues for every player (try rhyming the clues for fun), each clue leading to the next one and, finally, to the treasure. Seal them in envelopes marked with a clue number (i.e., 2/7, or “two of seven”); this will help the treasure hunters keep track. Whoever solves the clues first and finds the treasure—a small toy, an IOU for a movie, maybe a cache of coins (regular or chocolate)—is the winner. Or have your kids play as a team to solve the clues—and uncover the treasure—together.

  • Make Your Own Bubble Bath
    Slip into a soothing bath laced with your own moisturizing soap blend. In a clean container, mix together ½ cup mild liquid hand or body soap, 1 tablespoon sugar or honey, and 1 egg white. Pour the entire mixture under the running water as you draw your bath. Honey is a natural humectant, which will attract and retain moisture in your skin. The egg white helps create stronger, longer-lasting bubbles, for a nice, fluffy bath. For extra-dry skin, consider adding a tablespoon of light oil, such as almond or light sesame. (Another surprising bath booster? Vinegar)!

  • Create a Family Recipe Book
What You Need:
Unlined journal
recipe cards (the more sauce-splattered, the better)
wine or Champagne labels
photos from family meals
adhesive
photo corners
ruler
shimmery alphabet stickers (available at crafts stores)
ribbon

  • What to Do:
    Color-copy all recipe cards, photos, and labels if you want to preserve the originals or make more than one gift book.
    Compile the memorabilia by time period, holiday, or any other theme that inspires you.
    Affix the items horizontally in the journal. Use photo corners for pictures and recipe cards and adhesive for labels and clippings.
    Stick a title on the front of the journal with alphabet stickers (using a ruler helps), and finish off with a ribbon.

  • Camp in the Great Indoors
    Who says tents have to stay outside? If you have a pop-up or small dome tent, it’s easy to set up camp for your kids indoors. If not, you can create tents by draping sheets over the couch. Make them comfy with airbeds, pillows, and sleeping bags, then follow through with an indoor picnic to be eaten “under canvas.”

  • Invent a (No-Batteries) Game
    Anne Libera, artistic associate at the Second City Training Center, recommends the following play-anywhere, no-props-needed activities.

    One-word story: Starting with “Once upon a time,” go around the room and have each person add a single word to the story. Tip: Decide on a genre in advance―fairy tale, ghost story, etc.―and go from there.

    Improvised poetry: One person says a line of poetry, and the next must say a line that rhymes with it, and so on. Let kids say the first line; it’s up to you to find the rhyme.

    Yes, and…monster! Invent an imaginary monster, with each person adding a new characteristic to the first person’s monster description. Every new idea has to start with an enthusiastic, “Yes, and…” and build on what has already been described.

  • Bake Up Some Chocolate-Chip Cookies
    Nothing cures rainy day blues like a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies. Dunk them in milk or eat ’em (practically) right out of the oven—a surefire way to happily weather the storm. Now, if you and your family fancy other varieties, that’s no problem.

  • Ingredients:
150g salted butter, softened
80g light brown muscovado sugar
80g granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
225g plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
¼ tsp salt
200g plain chocolate chips or chunks
    Ingredients:
    150g salted butter, softened
    80g light brown muscovado sugar
    80g granulated sugar
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    1 large egg
    225g plain flour
    ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
    ¼ tsp salt
    200g plain chocolate chips or chunks
  • Method

    Preheat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
    Put the butter and sugars into a bowl and beat until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt over the mixture and mix in with a wooden spoon. Add the chocolate chips and stir well.

  • Using a teaspoon, place small mounds of the mixture well apart on the baking trays. Bake in the oven for 8–10 mins until light brown on the edges and still slightly soft in the centre.
    Leave on the tray for a couple of minutes to firm up and then transfer to a cooling rack.

  • Organize Your Own Film Festival
    Queue up some classics, old (Singin’ in the Rain) and new (Toy Story 3), let the kids add a few favorites—even mix in last week’s American Idol on DVR for variety—and have a marathon screening. Keep a cozy throw on hand to snuggle under, a big bowl of popcorn to dip into, and settle in to enjoy the show(s).

  • Hold a Mini-Marshmallow Popping Contest
    What You Need

    scissors
    utility knife
    markers
    ruler
    rubber bands
    glue
    tape (transparent, duct, masking, or colored)
    gift wrap or decorative paper
    kraft paper
    balloon, uninflated (1 per popper)
    paper cup, bottom cut off (1 per popper)
    mini marshmallows

  • What to Do

    Knot the end of the balloon, then snip off ½ inch from the top.
    Stretch the balloon over the cutoff end of the cup so that the knot is in the center. (You’ll need to hold the balloon in place when you “pop,” or secure it with a rubber band for little hands.)
    Place a mini marshmallow into the cup so it fits snugly in the knotted center of the balloon. While aiming the cup away from you (and others), pull the knot back, release, and send the marshmallow soaring. See who can pop marshmallows the farthest or get the most into a bowl that’s a few feet away.

  • Host a “Tea” Party
    Dress up in fancy duds, set the table with the good china, and put on your most formal manners (remember, extend your pinkie and sip politely). On the menu: tea (for you), juice or cocoa (for your children), and easy egg or chicken salad tea sandwiches in fun shapes, courtesy of cookie cutters. Let your kids decide the guest list—and which of their favorite dolls or furry friends are on it.
