You look outside and what do you see... it’s raining, it’s pouring and you’re left bored with nothing to do. Just because the weather isn’t cooperating doesn’t mean there aren’t fun things you can do indoors to keep you entertained. If you’re at home with the kids, challenge them to try different activities that otherwise might not have interested them. Show them that you can do so much more than watch TV or play video games on a rainy day. Try these three activities to help turn that boring rainy afternoon into one of the most fun afternoons yet!

Go camping indoors! Build a Fort!

                Who says you can’t go on a camping adventure indoors? Just because the rain is keeping you indoors doesn’t mean it should keep you from camping with the kids.

Add some Kiddy Up pitballs to make your tent even more fun!
