Day 2 | Favourite things to do with your family on a rainy day

I live in Wales. It rains. A lot. Dealing with a six and a five year old with cabin fever is a pretty regular occurrence in our house.

Apart from an hour or so watching TV or playing a video game, there are a number of failsafe indoor activities that never fail to entertain my beanies.

* Baking

I love to bake and my daughter loves nothing more than to 'help' me :) We're big cupcake fans in this house and regularly get out our trusty Primrose Bakery book to whip up a batch. The book also has an amazing recipe for cinnamon buns which are fun for kids to make as you have to knead and roll the dough. Edible play doh!

* Lego

Good old Lego. What would we do without it? Always one of the first things we pull out of the toy cupboard on a rainy day. Dylan is so creative and builds some amazing things. I love to see him using his imagination to build spaceships, houses and his favourite characters.

* A carpet picnic

We used to do this a lot when the beanies were smaller, but they still enjoy it now. They invite all their favourite toys and prepare a delicious spread in their toy kitchen before eating their own lunch alongside them. A carpet picnic is usually followed by some sort of dance party or gymnastics display!

* Build a den

We haven't done this for a while actually and writing this blog post has made me want to get out the spare sheets and make a teepee for the kids to play in. Whenever we've made a den on a rainy day, the kids have spent most of the day playing in it with their toys and even want to eat their meals in there. A great way to fill an otherwise uneventful day!
