Top Rainy Day Activities To Try With Your Kids

September 07, 2020

After lockdown, it feels as though many of us have been trying to get out and about as much as possible with our little ones and, as it’s summer, who can blame us? But autumn is just around the corner and that means we’re likely to start seeing colder and more wet and wild weather in the coming weeks and months.

Once the summer sunshine has gone, how can you occupy your little ones if you don’t want to go out?

The Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard recently offered some suggestions of activities to try without having to leave your own home. One of the recommendations is to do some baking, which is not only a great way to create some tasty treats for the whole family, but also an opportunity to start teaching your little ones the basics of cooking.

Painting is another tried-and-tested classic, just make sure that you’re properly prepared for the mess this might create, especially with younger children.

If your little ones want to blow off some steam, you could help them build a fort. Sofa cushions, blankets and even mattresses can all be great for fort building. Encourage them to help you create their little safe haven so that they feel that it’s truly their space.

Hide and seek is a classic kids game but it’s a great one to play with your youngsters when the weather is too bad to go outdoors. 

Dressing up is another suggestion made by the news provider and we recently explained why this is such a great way to spend time with your little ones, because it can help them develop their fine and gross motor skills, as well as building up their confidence.

If you’re going back to the office soon, and you need day nurseries in Cheshire to help you manage childcare around work, get in touch with us to find out about our nurseries and what places we have available.

Wow!!!! Were to begin.. this is by far the best nursery I could have sent my children too. The staff are extremely... friendly helpful and ensure the children are cared for and they learnt so much. My children settled really well and have both enjoyed being here. Seeing them so happy and always excited for the next day at paintpots Manchester makes me feel so at ease leaving them. They are always involving parents in everything and make you feel like one big family. A massive thank you to everyone who works there and all you have done. Looking forward to extending our family into their welcoming nursery again in the future.read more

Sent my step-son here for over 2 years before he started school. Perfect location, great staff and most importantly, he... loved it. Only issue was the refurbishment of the building taking place, but they even managed to use that as a learning experience and the kids all loved the builders and diggers opposite!!read more

I sent my child to this Nursery after having sent his 2 older siblings. I work in the City Centre and they love the... place, they all did. There are staff that have been there for over 10 years, location is fantastic and whilst the recent renovation works have not been ideal, it hasn't affected the care one bit. Somehow, they even find a way to make activities that involve the construction materials. Can't recommend highly enough!!read more
