A rainy day activity box
Keeping your kids entertained on a rainy day is a great way to get them to play using their imagination. There are heaps of make-believe activities that will keep your kids entertained for hours that require little more than a few basic essentials.
What you need:
- A big box
- Milk bottles and cartons
- Ribbon and string
- Textas, pencils and crayons
- Cereal boxes
- Toilet rolls
Number of players:
A rainy day activity box works best if you only bring it out on rainy days so its contents are interesting and new.
Encourage your kids to use the rainy day box contents as the basis of imaginative and creative play.
The cereal boxes can become buildings or robots or cars.
The toilet rolls can become binoculars or a tree trunk or a microphone.
The milk cartons can be cut in two to become train carriages or houses or doll’s beds.
