I'll admit, sometimes I turn to the internet for inspiration and other times I turn to it out of desperation. We recently moved from a perpetually drought-stricken part of the country to a new town in the same state where it rains so much it pays homage to swamp-loving insects with it's yearly mosquito festival. (I kid you not). I never really understood the purpose of "rainy day activities" until we moved here...It's because the kids drive you nuts! Here are two activities I've recently tried on Fulton that we both loved:
Painting Cars. My original plan was to paint paper with car wheels but as I was setting up the table Fulton starting painting the car exteriors. Works for me! Again, this was an activity that kept my little guy busy for an hour. So many sighs of deep contentment from him as he worked hard to get the cars painted to his liking.
He was so proud of his car detailing he asked me to take pictures of each car as he finished them. I suggested we run them through a "car wash" but he would have none of that business. He's requested the activity several times since I introduced him to it last week. He finally conceded to having his cars washed when he ran out of cars to paint. We used washable tempera paints so the paint came off easy enough.
Thank you for stopping by! Please head over to Sarah's for more inspiration and fun.
