What activities have you found useful for a grandchild during the holidays, if the weather is bad?
There are always loads of things to do when it's sunny but when it rains it's not so easy - winter holidays or really foul weather - so I'm looking for some good ideas!
Interested in what to do in the rain? These fun activities will give you plenty of ideas for stuff to do on a rainy day
1-Document the Day
Give your young photographers disposable waterproof cameras so they can capture the stormy weather on film. Spring showers provide a perfect opportunity to capture rare images of water droplets, colorful cloud formations, reflections in puddles, and beautiful rainbows.
2-Homemade Water Park
Don't fight to stay dry when the clouds let loose. Don bathing suits, and make a plan to get completely drenched. Pull out the plastic water slide, set up the sprinkler, and fill the inflatable pool to create a wet and wild theme park.
Pitch a tent in your backyard when the clouds start to gather. You'll stay nice and dry when the rain starts,
Playing in the snow tops my list for winter. Making a snowman or snow angles are always fun.
When everyone is cold go inside for some hot chocolate and a board game. I was surprised how long my grandchildren could be occupied by a game of Monopoly, even the five year old.
Have fun sketching a family tree. Get the child acquainted with the names of some other relatives.
I don't have grandchildren yet, but I do have two children. One of the things we like to do on a rainy day is paint seashells that we collect at the beach. We collect good size clam shells and scallop shells. The local supermarket here has frozen scallop and stuffed clams and we save the shells from those too because they are really big and pretty. After washing and drying them, the children paint them. They love it! In the event I'm out of shells, I buy small artist canvas boards at the craft store in a 6 pack and they paint their own designs.
