How to Have Fun Inside on Rainy Summer Days

Here are 10 of our favorite ways to make rainy summer days stuck inside more fun for the little ones.

Get Crafty

Grab the markers, crayons, paint, and other craft supplies and let the kids unleash some creativity.

Make lemonade

Lemonade is a classic summer beverage that is super easy to make to make at home.

Have the kids help you make it by squeezing the lemons, measuring the sugar, and stirring.

A glass of homemade lemonade can help bring a bit of summer fun to even the rainiest of days.

Swim in the bathtub

Just because the kids can’t swim in the pool or in the ocean doesn’t mean that they have to stay dry. Have them grab some goggles and take a dip in the bathtub. Bubbles are optional!

Have Twin Pops

When the weather is keeping you indoors, bring summer fun inside by enjoying Twin Pops with the kids.

I have been buying colorful Twin Pops for my family for years. They really are the quintessential summer treat.

I make sure to always keep them stocked in my freezer, especially throughout the summer months.

Create an obstacle course

Create an obstacle course for the kids using toys and other items from around the house.

Tunnels, slides, couch cushions, and chairs are all great for making a DIY obstacle course.

When the kids get tired of the course, have them change it up and create a new course.

You could also have the kids create an obstacle course for YOU to complete – they will love to watch you do their course!

Play games

Games are a great way to have fun as a family when stuck indoors.

No board games? No problem! Freeze dance, hide n’ seek, and I spy are all great games that don’t require any board or supplies.

Make slime

Slime has been all the rage with kids lately, and truth-be-told, I love making slime myself.

This under-the-sea ocean slime would be perfect for the kids to make on a rainy summer day.

Go on a scavenger hunt

Make a list of items around the house for the kids to find (or download a printable indoor scavenger hunt here), and send them on a mission to be the first to collect them all!

To make a scavenger hunt more challenging for older children you can use clues to describe the item they would find. For example, have them find: something you read (a book), something you wear on your feet (socks), something frozen and delicious (Twin Pops), etc…

Build a fort

When I was young, I used to love making pillow forts. My sister and I used to use our staircase landing to house our forts, and would spend hour inside.

Making forts is still a terrific rainy-day activity. So next time it rains, try grabbing a bedsheet and some pillows to build a fort. The little ones will love it!

For bonus points, let the kids have Twin Pops while inside their fort!

Watch a movie

Sit down and watch a movie as a family.

Bonus points for watching a summer-themed movie.

Don’t forget the snacks. While popcorn is the classic choice for snacking during movies, who says that you can’t enjoy Twin Pops instead?
