Rain, Rain Go Away

We're scheduled to have a weekend full of rain. I personally love rain. But rainy days mean finding indoor activities where the kids are concerned. Here are a few things to keep in mind for a rainy (or snowy) day:

Take some of those things you collected on your last nature walk and make little creatures from them. Use google eyes and glue to make them come to life. {Photo & idea from Family Fun}

We love all of the Word World toys. They have a great selection of them at Target. Hudson especially likes the memory game (you know...pick two cards, try to get a match). But this Magnetic Play Set looks like fun, too. Also check out Word World's website for more fun games.

These Tempra Painters are a must-have. The foam tips allow for drawing, splatting, and all sorts of other techniques with minimal mess. The paint is washable...another must. I really can't say enough good things about these paints. Hudson loves painting with them; and I love it when he does because there's really not much to clean up when he's done. Get them here.
