Rainy Day Activity Ideas
Spring showers are here and with the kids off for Easter break this week I need some rainy day activity ideas to keep them happy and busy. We have a family outing planned for a long weekend but other than that it’s the kids and I at home this week. I have kids ranging in age from 12 years down so I like activities that all of them can participate in or I pair the older ones with the youngest ones if it is a preschool or kindergarten age activity. I hope you all enjoyed a beautiful Easter weekend and break if your kids are off too. Scroll down below for the rainy day activity ideas I found and I’m also sharing some FREE printables that I created!
Indoor Scavenger Hunt
My kids love scavenger hunts and so I created an indoor scavenger hunt sheet for them. By having a prize at the end and splitting the kids into teams the kids had a blast with this! There are two versions of this indoor scavenger hunt – one aimed for younger kids and other for older kids. You can print out your FREE copies HERE or click below.
Last year I created these activity worksheets to do with my preschooler/pre kindergartener. These were great to do while the big kids were in school and made learning fun for him. You can read the blog post and print your FREE activity sheets HERE or click below.
Playdoh is such a fun sensory activity and keeps my kids entertained for hours. I put together some playdoh kits that were beach themed last year that they still enjoy. You could gather some materials around your home and set up a playdoh station to keep them entertained! Check out my diy playdoh kit by clicking on the button below.
Super Hero Crafts
Are your kids super hero fans? Mine are and I created these upcycled super hero TP figures for them last year. This was a really easy upcycled craft that they loved and drew a quick city on colored construction paper with a white crayon for them to play.

Sensory bins are a great way for kids to play and learn! They work on fine motor skills, cognitive development, sensory processing and more.
What is a sensory bin? A sensory bin is a bin filled with a texture like rice or beans with a few toys added in to stimulate their senses.
Recently I created a rainbow rice sensory bin.
