Rainy day? Call it a PJ day, play on the floor with ALL the toys and take long naps with lots of cuddles…;-)
We have a LOT of rainy days here in Portland, OR so we have to live life as normal when the skies are gray. We go for walks, go to the park, take hikes, or stay inside and play with trains, cars, read books and run reall fast back and forth accross the house.
Depends on the temperature. If it’s warm, then puddle-splashing and running around in the backyard, getting wet. If it’s cold, then it’s a good day for naps and drawing with markers.
Our favorite rainy day activity would have to be cuddling up in bed, nursing the 15 mo old and watching a movie.

Rain? What is that? We only tend to get snow around here, so the occasional rain or thunderstorm is always interesting to watch. We like to view from our porch. I wish we could experience the sights, sounds and smells of a good rain more often!
cleaning and doing laundry!
One of our favorite rainy day activities is finger painting with Reddi Whip. Lil man is not a year old yet, so everything ends up in the mouth. I don’t have to worry about paint in the mouth, plus a bath after is fun. Have a great day!
After a long morning of music making, my 18 month old and I snuggle up for an episode of “Shoes Shoes” (Blues clues), his favorite TV show.

On rainy days we have craft time. On rainy nights we have movie night. We pull out the hide-a-bed, pop some popcorn, bring out our pillows and stuffed animals. Snugglefest!
My favorite rainy day activity is to settle in on the couch with a good book. Since I have very young kids our rainy days are usually filled with movies, coloring, crafts, and puddle jumping (if we’re out and about).

Cuddles by the fire, of course!

Today in NW Iowa I’d have to switch it to our favourite SNOWY day activity! 🙂 But favourite stuck-inside activities: reading, snuggling on the couch, baking together, doing crafts, and occasionally watching a movie. Of those listed, reading is my kids’ favourite! We can sit and read together for an hour!
My son is 4months so he loves to do anything. I love the rain but now with a child prefer sunny days to be able to take him to the park or for a walk outside. But on rainy days, I bring out his toys in the living room and all day we play and of course during his naps we cuddle together!
Well, baby is on-the-way for me so right now I enjoy spending my rainy days snuggling on the couch with our dog, watching movies that I’ve watched a million times before that my boyfriend hates while HE goes and gets take out!

Oops, Thanks for leaving comments. I clarified the entries. Today we’re talking about rainy day activities!
I’m going to assume for the giveaway you’d like us to just leave a comment. I’d love a ribbit diaper. Babylegs are SO HARD to chose from.
Eiffel Tower is my favorite in the artist series. William for the BabyLegs.
I’m unsure of what we’re supposed to post for our giveaway entry as well, but I would choose the ribbit snap diaper with the Henry Babylegs for my little man!! 🙂
I’m not sure what the entry is supposed to be, but I would choose a snap closing clementine diaper and babylegs that coordinate (not sure if we’re having a boy or a girl!) Email me if I need to change my entry somehow! (link on blog) thanks!
