Rainy day toddler activities from Pinterest

My little guy is at the stage where he runs everywhere and wants to live every moment of his waking life outdoors. When the weather is bad, he bangs on the window or brings me his little shoes with a pouty bottom lip. I try to avoid too much television for him (because after outdoor play, TV is his favorite thing in the whole wide world), so sometimes I turn to Pinterest for a few fun ideas. Often, I can find an activity that entertains big sister as well. They are almost six years apart in age, but she will get into crafty or laughter-inducing fun most anytime.

25 Indoor Toddler Activities for Rainy Summer Days includes bottle bowling, making your own snow, shower ball pits, painting with marshmallows, and more.

Activities to do on a Rainy Day reminds us that some of the best fun can be simple, like peeling tape, walking on pillows, and stacking canned goods.

Another great list is Fun Indoor Activities for Toddlers and Their Parents. This list includes physical activities like ball play and follow the leader that will help the little ones to burn some energy when they cannot run in the yard.

We have been lucky to have several sunny days in a row lately, but I am prepared when the rain finally arrives! What do you like to do indoors with the little ones? Or the big kids?
