With the Easter holidays fast approaching, and the weather being its usual changeable self, I thought that a blog about rainy day activities might be helpful. From craft activities to days out, there’s something for everyone, from pre-school to high school.
From pasta pictures to fairy houses, there’s something for everyone with NetMum’s 35 Rainy Day activities. Some activities will need a bit of pre-planning, but others are completely impromptu – like building an indoor assault course! Click here for the link.
School age children
If your child enjoys science, technology, engineering and maths, then these 44 challenges will be a good way to stop the boredom setting in over the holiday. The James Dyson Foundation have created a downloadable PDF with clear instructions for each activity. Click here for the link.
Any age – even Dads!
BBC Rocket Challenge. Build it on a rainy day, launch it when the sun comes out! Have a go at this BBC Rocket Challenge, using a few household items such as bottles, straws, vinegar and bicarbonate of soda. What could go wrong?
There’s plenty to fill a morning or two. With videos from some of the TV shows that have given this challenge a go, clear instructions on how to build your own rocket, and further activities to try at home. Click here for the link.
Whatever you get up to over the holidays, I hope you have fun making lovely memories with your children. If you get a minute I’d love to see what you’ve been doing. Please post your pictures or videos on my Facebook page here.
