Hi there! Wendy here, from Pretty Well Organized. My family lives in Iowa and we have been having some really aggressive summer weather. Normally this time of year we have 90 degree heat and clear skies.
Not this summer.
We have been having a ton of harsh storms including days and days of rain.
Did I mention I have a 3 year old? We are going a little stir crazy.
I went to Target today with a mission of creating a solution to these rainy days we just can’t seem to shake. I stopped in the One Spot and picked up a few $1 items and then went through the back to school section to pick up a few other Crayola items. For about $25, I purchased a bin and a ton of $1 items to fill our Kid’s Rainy Day Activity Kit:
This project was really as simple as picking up a basket, picking out some really basic items and arranging them into the basket for our next rainy day.
I am almost hoping for another rainy day so I can bust out this cute little kit and see how my daughter reacts to all the fun in the kit. I included a lot of letter tracing, sight words flashcards, number tracing, crayons, pencils, construction paper, glue sticks and scissors. All the items necessary to unlock a little one’s imagination are in this kit. My daughter is in the early stages of writing (so far just her name and the alphabet) and reading. Anything I can do to leverage those interests I am fully on board with.
How do you combat the rainy day blues? I’d love to hear your tips and tricks for keeping the littles occupied after a few days indoors.
