It’s Raining, It’s Pouring! 13 Rainy Day Crafts for Toddlers
Nothing drives little ones more crazy than being cooped up in the house on rainy days. If they are not being entertained, kept busy or occupied, you could be in for a long day.
Toddlers are little packages of energy, I honestly think they suck it out of us parents some days. Bella is on full speed from the time she wakes up, until the time she goes to bed. If I don’t have things for her to do she ends up turning into a tiny terror!
Bella loves to do crafts of any sort. Anything she can squish, build, colour or touch grabs her attention. A craft like the DIY Puffy Paint below could keep her entertained for a good hour.
Working from home has its pros and cons. I chose to save money and not put Bella in daycare, instead keeping her at home. This means I have to plan her days to keep her entertained so she is not off creating havoc in the house. Crafts are a huge part of our daily routine and I always have something for her to do.
Luckily working in a private daycare and having two toddlers before her gave me some experience. It gave me the ability to plan structured days that keep her busy so I can get work done.
On days where it rains our outside play time often has to be replaced with crafts and other activities. Today I want to share some of Bella’s favourite crafts that keep her occupied when the weather isn’t on our side.
