Easy Entertainment for a Rainy Day

A long part of Saturday was dreary and rainy here. The kids were cooped-up inside and getting a little loud. A lot loud. 

They weren't being bad, just kids. But I needed to find a way to quiet them down (that didn't involve television) to keep my sanity. So I rolled out the craft paper on the kitchen table. We painted sun-catchers, drew pictures, played several intense games of tic-tac-toe, and connected-the-dots.

We also added more thankful notes to the jar. It has been a while since we've done that. The first time Sun Kissed Boy #3 added a thankful note, he drew his blessings. This time he actually wrote them.  

After that, we made grill cheese sandwiches and then electronics won them over once more.

What do you do on rainy days?

My mom used to bring out the craft paper on snow days! Sometimes she'd tack it up on the wall and let us make murals.

Great photos, Yanet.

You are such a fun mom! I need to break out the craft paper more often!

Susan said...

Fun! Since we're kid-less, we play video games. :-D (or maybe read a book)

That top photo is amazing. I love the expression on his face and how much he's 'in' to it.
