Rainy Day Play

Rainy Day Play


So we have already had the first week of the holidays and for the most part it has whizzed past, we have been to the library and signed up to the reading challenge (and lugged home huge quantities of books) been to the museum  where had had lunch with the best ice-cream ever and met up with my friend to watch some open air theatre in the park and have a play in the play area so I definitely haven't been bored so far.


Today though has been pouring with rain and as baby brother is quite ill with a bad cold and conjunctivitis we haven't left the house all day. It hasn't been too bad as it has given us a chance to play with our toys a lot more than we normally do. Lottie has had her old Happyland out and we have both played with the LEGO, our new Magformers set (more about that soon!) built a Micro Chargers track and made a really cool Hexbug run. We have also been teaching Lottie to sew and have done some drawing. Mum has said we can make a den in a bit but for now it is a case of keeping things a little quieter as Sam is trying to sleep but keeps coughing and waking himself up.

Sometimes it's really nice to have a day where we don't go out at all and just enjoy being at home but in the Summer holidays we normally like to try and get outside a lot. Hopefully we won't have too much more rain and if we do, once Sam is better, we can all put on waterproofs and wellies and go out and splash around but just in case we would love to know what other people like to do on a cold and wet day if they have lots of time to fill? Any ideas that Lottie and I can do on our own or that Mum can help us with one handed whilst looking after Sam would be great?!
