50 Things to Know to Entertain a Kid on a Rainy DayLife is not about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain.

As adults we often forget what being a child entails. What was once first nature to us becomes foreign and easy to underestimate. Kids these days, with the digital age upon us, have lost touch with the simple things we used to keep ourselves occupied with back in the day.

The good news is there are still plenty of things to do with kids indoors on a rainy day. TV, music, video games and technology does play a significant part of this. However, there are more activities that will bring you closer together that you can pass the time with in your own home.

Try to think back to the good old days when you were carefree. What did you love doing? Who did you spend the most time with? What did you take away from those experiences as a child? These are all important questions to be answered.
