Rainy Day activities for the Family Header

Rainy day activities are for those days when the sun doesn�۪t come out, and you�۪re stuck inside figuring out something OTHER than watching TV to do. Often times this is a result of the weather not being as planned, and having to fill time allocated to some other activity. Many indoor activities can help bring families together, rather than TV that is often a silent process that does not connect people, or Internet surfing (as opposed to using the internet to find activities which is very different) which inherently separates people. Regardless of why you�۪re staying indoors, there are tons of fun things to do indoors on a rainy day!
