Rainy Day Activites
Build a Den
Grab a box, sheet or blanket and make a den to play in!
See what floats and what sinks! You can use fruit and veg, stones and shells as well as other items from around the house.
Dressing Up Time
Try on silly hats, shoes, scarfs and even shoes!
Draw or paint cards or pictures for friends or family or just for fun!
Bake a cake or some biscuits or just get your child to help make the dinner!
Draw simple clues on paper that leads your child around the house to a pot of gold...or maybe just a small treat instead!
Great for numeracy and learning coordination. Turn yourself into a robot and ask to be directed from one room to the next. Then it's your turn!
