Our List of Summer Activities for Sunny and Rainy Days

With July almost over I am sure children are often looking for things to do and parents too. I remember when I was younger we spent all our time outside and on rainy days we often found ourselves inside wanting to be outside. My little one is the same way and I am often wondering what we can do, so I decided to start this list to share with you.

For Outside Days
  • Visit our local playgrounds
  • Picnics at our local parks
  • Hikes on our local trails
  • Run through the sprinkler or play in the wading pool
  • Explore our city – play tourist for the day
  • Camp out in the backyard
  • Check out our local farmers’ Markets
  • Backyard fun – Bubbles, Frisbee, T ball, kicking around the soccer ball
  • Story time on the back deck or front patio. Enjoy the fresh air while we are reading.

For Rainy Days
  • Story time at our local libraries
  • Crafts – Search on line for ideas or we use our imagination.
  • Play Cards. We play Go Fish and it helps with number recognition.
  • Have a Puppet show (Why not make the puppets too. Mismatched socks work great)
  • Have a Movie Day. Pop some popcorn and curl up on the couch.
  • Make a fort and enjoy the time reading and snacking.
  • Have an indoor picnic.
  • Play board games.
  • Manicures and pedicures – my Little One loves this. And so do I!
  • Dress up!
What are some of your rainy day activities?
