Rainy days aren’t always fun. Energetic kiddos who love to run and explore in the park often end up lazing around in the house instead of having fun, while kids who hate all things loud and scary have to deal with terrifying thunder and lightning flashes. It’s safe to say that the rainy day blues can strike just about anyone at any age.
Your kids don’t have to surrender to the rainy day blues every year. Anyone can find speckles of sunlight in the darkest and heaviest clouds as long as they get to spend precious time with those they love the most. Keep your child’s emotions, mind, and body in good shape during bad weather with these activities.
