4 Ways to Keep Kids Entertained On Rainy Days 

You know how restless your kids can get if they can’t burn off pent-up energy outside. They start to fidget and mess around. They cannot keep still, and that can be difficult for parents as they try to handle multiple restless kids alone. Even if the weather isn’t ideal, you can still find some excellent ideas to keep your kids (and their friends) entertained. 

Bake Something 

Baking is always a great time as it contains multiple steps and stages, and can take all day depending on what you’re putting in the oven. You'll need to supervise the kids or course, but these easy baking recipes are a great way for them to take the reins and lead the baking process. 

This activity teaches your kids about how to put food together rather than have it appear almost by magic on their plate at dinner time. It can also generate an appreciation for baking and could inspire interest that brings them back to the kitchen to try another recipe next time. 

Watch Something 

While you may not want to let your TV do the parenting for you, watching something is still a useful way to keep kids entertained on a rainy day, especially if you’re trying to juggle multiple things. If you’re looking after kids of various ages, streaming something seasonal, such as the Miracle on Christmas movie, can keep kids engaged regardless of age. 

These movies can also be educational, which means your kids and their friends will learn something, and they can apply this knowledge to their everyday lives.

Play Something 

If you’re looking for an activity that can take all day, board games are a superb option. There is a variety of classic games that can take hours, but there are also short and sweet games that are over in just 15 minutes, which may be more appropriate depending on your children’s age and attention span. 

More involved games like Monopoly or Clue are also good ideas as they encourage kids to think about more than their next move. Like movies with a lesson, this can be an excellent way for them to consider games as something more than just a bit of fun. 

Make Something 

Kids love to get messy, and there’s no better way to do this than by making something. You can choose from an array of craft activities, including clay and tie dye, which give your kids and their friends something to take home with them. 

These crafts can be something quick but there’s still a useful educational element as they learn how to put things together to create something different. What’s more, younger children will find that it improves their fine motor skills. Just keep them away from any hot glue or sharp items. 

That’s Entertainment

You’ll quickly find that it’s easy to entertain your kids and their friends even on the dreariest and wettest days. It would be even better if you can entertain them with an activity that educates them at the same time. They might be having so much fun that they don’t even realize they’re learning, which is usually the most effective approach.
