There are many great rainy day activities for kids out there, and all the news about Harvey should alert every mother to the possibility of being caught in a similar situation.

While most adults will need to volunteer their services with respect to clean-up, children will need to be entertained.

These rainy day activities for kids can come in handy during an emergency, or any time when kids have to stay indoors.

1. A Puppet Show

Children love watching puppet shows.

By the same token, they welcome the opportunity to put on their own show.2

Of course, parents need to provide them with some type of “stage.”

Tie a rope onto two chairs and hang a blanket over that same rope.2

Have the children get behind the blanket and stick their hands in the air above the make-shift “stage.” The kids can also put socks on their hands, or use stuffed animals as puppets.

As the parent, you will be the audience.

2. Long-delayed Projects Can Be an Option

Is there a toy, like a dollhouse, that your children now ignore?

Could it be cleaned up and donated?

If “yes,” then you should know what to do next.

Of course, you cannot expect your children to do all the work.

You will need to get the ball rolling, by demonstrating how to get this toy ready for donation.

3. Play a Card Game

If that starts to bore them, use the same cards to create another game.2

Have them try to build something, like a castle for little children or, a fort but older children.

Mom's can keep kids from giving up before they have really tried to build anything, by providing an example of how a few cards can be arranged to support other cards.

Words of encouragement help prolong this game as well.2
