9 Rainy Day Activities to Do with Your Kids

BAY CITY, Mich. –– Rainy days during the spring can often put a damper on you and your children's spirits. Plus, as parents, you know that the last thing you want is for your kids to feel cooped up or go stir-crazy. So when the weather isn't cooperating, try any of these nine rainy day activities to do with your kids to keep from saying the dreaded phrase, "I'm bored!"

9 Rainy Day Activities to Do with Your Kids

Play Cards or Board Games

Keeping those little minds occupied is always tricky, so on the next rainy day, pull out a deck of cards or some board games! Card games can keep your kids intrigued for hours! Play Slapjack, Old Maid, Six Card Golf, Crazy Eights, or the classic, Go Fish! That, or it's never too early to teach a young Michigander how to play Euchre!

Have a Dance Party

It's never the wrong time to get the wiggles out by dancing and singing along to your favorite music!

Bake Some Treats

Rainy days are always perfect for indulging your sweet tooth. Plus the warm and pleasant smells of baking some confectionary treats will make it feel less dreary outside. Try a batch of brownies, cookies, or even some homemade ice cream, all of which are simple recipes that your little ones can help whip up!

Go Bowling

This is a great way to still be active and get out of the house when the weather isn't cooperating! Visit any of the fun-filled bowling alleys in Bay City, including Bay Lanes, Monitor Lanes, or Washington Lanes.

Hold a Fashion Show

Let your kids dress up in some fancy clothes or costumes and strut their stuff on the runway! Dressing up is always fun! 


Read Books

Dreary days are ideal for curling up with a good book! Or, to get out of your house, take a trip to your local library. Either way, you'll promote literacy with your young children and inspire their imagination to wander to the far reaches of creativity!

Build a Blanket & Pillow Fort

Everyone's favorite indoor activity. Create a fun little shelter where you kids can play inside with their toys, read a book, or take a nap.

Play Hide and Seek

Another fun game that will keep your kids active and engaged even when they can't play outside due to the weather.

Watch a Movie

Whether you head to the movie theater or have your own private screening at home, have some fun watching a movie or two on a rainy day! Make (or buy) some popcorn, grab a blanket and get comfy on the couch. Or, you can even watch from your pillow fort!
