What are your favorite indoor activities for the rainy/snowy day? How do you keep your kids "constructively" busy?

Jonathan loves Play-Doh and drawing, so that's usually what we do.

I put them to work. They are my slaves.


JUST KIDDING!
The older two will do crafts, color, read, board games

Pee wee depends on what we are doing as to what we are doing as to what she will do.

Most of the kid would love doing the painting or coloring pages as these are attracted because of the colors. So download the pages of the coloring sheets and take the print out of the sheet and give them the crayons to color those. My kid love doing these activity. I have downloaded the shark coloring pages from this site.

All depends on their age but we used to do a lot of painting activities when my little nieces were younger and I helped babysitting them. Wrong time of year for this one really but collecting autumn leaves and doing leaf art with paints was quite fun. Its a good way to then broach the subject of nature and the seasons. Anything is good where they can learn some stuff too at the same time. If you have a window free, you could always try window painting. Just tape up the no go areas, strategically place some protective sheets and make sure you use paints that will easily wash-off with a bit of water. I think its just a bit more interesting than paper painting. They can let their imagination run riot whilst they look out the window. Can be messy but easy enough to clean up really.
