Visit my blog to get some helpful tips to assist in determining if your kids are ready for a particular movie or show.
It can be hard enough to keep children entertained all day long when you have the option of going outside. Take away that option due to bad weather and finding something to keep everyone occupied without spending a small fortune can seem like an impossible task. However, with the inexpensive, yet fun-filled activities described below, you may just find that your kids start looking forward to the next rainy day.
Check Out The Latest Season Of Your Favorite TV Show
Sure, popping some popcorn and sitting down in front of a move will keep everyone busy for a short period of time. The problem is, unless the rain lets up and the ground dries out within the next few hours, you will find yourself right back at square one as soon as the movie comes to an end. Thankfully you can avoid this problem by choosing to replace your movie time with a bit of TV time instead. Simply pick up a copy of your favorite TV series on DVD and make a day out of getting through the latest season. Best of all, with the cliff hangers that most TV shows are famous for, keeping the party going will be easy as everyone is anxious to see what happens on the next episode.
Spend The Day As Your Favorite Character
If your children enjoy using their imagination, this activity will be perfect for them. Rather than stopping at simply watching your favorite television show, you can really get into the story by each choosing your favorite character and committing to that role for the entire day. Choose clothing that resembles their fashion style, speak using an accent or catch phrases that are commonly used by your character. When breaking for meal time, be sure to choose foods that your character likes to eat. Before you know it, you will not only be watching the story unfold on your television set, but you will be living the story as well. This can be great for children who have trouble sitting still during a long movie or television show as they will feel more invested in what they see.
A Final Thought
When it comes to planning rainy day activities, the sky truly is the limit. So go ahead and expand on the ideas above or come up with a few ideas of your own. Either way, you and the kids are sure to have fun when you bring the magic of television into your home on rainy day.Share
