It’s time for April showers, which means we may be stuck inside during a few of our upcoming lazy weekends. There’s no reason to turn to couch surfing or playing video games to keep the kids occupied. When all else fails, turn to Pinterest. Below are some of the most interesting and creative rainy day Pinterest activities that we’ve added to the Military Shoppers Pinterest account.
Make an Indoor Spider Web
This pin is one of the most popular rainy day activities on pinterest. It’s really easy: use painter’s tape to make “webs” and have your kids throw lightweight, soft objects at it. I suggest crumbled up paper for the best results.
Microwave your Ivory Soap
Have you ever microwaved a bar of ivory soap? Well, you should! This activity not only shows you how to microwave the soap, but the blogger gives you a cool idea of what to do with the soap once the experiment is done. There’s also a video tutorial for visual learners.
Do you have extra bottle of white glue hanging around? Have your kids make their own homemade flubber. This will provide hours of fun, and they can make many difference colors. I think some parents will be excited to do this craft as well.
As if we needed another use for red solo cups, this cup racing pin provides a fast-paced activity for your energetic children. I love how this blogger changed up the usual “blow cup” activity and even provided an alternate game for the kids to play with this set-up.
