40 Fun Rainy Day Activities For Kids

Organising activities for you and your little ones on cold and rainy winter days can be tricky. Autumn and winter have many gloomy, wet and icy cold days, but that’s no reason to be lazy.

It just means you should be more creative and think of different ways to have fun. Thinking of creative ways to entertain your young ones is exactly what you need on these days.

In the past few years, we’ve gotten used to home days, and it’s easier to think of different ideas to have fun inside. Sometimes, staying at home can be the most affordable and fun idea!

Of course, on rainy days staying at home doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. All you need to do is to prepare yourself and your little ones for the weather and find some suitable activities for the day.

Whether you’re looking for fun indoor activities or creative activities to do at home, we’ve got you covered!

List of fun rainy day activities for kids 

1. Create your own Masterpiece

Create your own Masterpiece

You can let the kids run wild with crayons, glue, coloured pens, paper, and whatever else you have in your house. Grabbing all the materials that you have hidden for years can be fun by itself.

However, it can be even more appealing to kids if you use them to create a new family masterpiece. Once you’ve completed your artwork, you can hang it on the wall so that they can always remember this special moment.

3D pieces can be arranged on a self and displayed as a family art gallery.

2. Board Games

Board Games

Board games are one of the oldest ideas for family fun times. Before all the new technological elements, kids used to have fun in different ways.

Sometimes, the old fun games are even better than the new ones. Get your old board games out of the storage and create a competitive family day. Teach them how to play your favourite old board game and have fun together.

3. Cook and Decorate

Cook and Decorate

On rainy days, you can experiment with your cooking. Make a cereal bar or cookie and let your kids customize it with colourful toppings, marshmallows and MMs. 

Getting them involved in any type of cooking can be fun and exciting for them. Let them get dirty with flour and chocolate. 

4. Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw puzzles can be a fun and enjoyable activity for kids of all ages.  Choose an age-appropriate puzzle. Of course, you should consider the number of pieces and the complexity of the image.

It’s important to choose a puzzle that is not too difficult, as this can be frustrating for kids. The next step is to set up a comfortable and quiet workspace: Choose an empty table or any flat surface where your child can work on the puzzle without distractions.

Usually, kids can not sort everything out alone. So sort the puzzle pieces (by colour or shape). Playing with your little ones means that you should encourage cooperation and let them do as much work as possible.

The last and most important step is to celebrate when the puzzle is complete – take a photo and display it proudly.

This action will help your child feel proud of their accomplishment and encourage them to try more puzzles in the future.

5. Playing with Playdough


Playing with playdough can be a fun and creative activity for people and kids of all ages. Create simple shapes, like balls, snakes, or any other basic shape.

To play with your playdough you can create a miniature world with houses, trees and rocks. The first step that you need to take is to play with the moulds.

Press the playdough into silicone moulds or cookie cutters to create different shapes and objects. Try adding different materials to the playdough, such as glitter, beads, or even small toys, to see how it changes the texture.

You can also use different tools such as rolling pins, cutters, and stamps, to create different shapes and patterns. Remember to always use playdough safely and supervise children while they are playing with it. 

If you are using homemade playdough, be sure to follow the recipe carefully and store it properly to prevent it from drying out.

6. Play Hide and Seek 

Hide and Seek 

Hide and seek is a classic game that can be a lot of fun for kids and adults! on rainy days. Choose your little seeker and let the rest of the family be the hiders.

The seeker should close his eyes and count to a predetermined number (such as 20 or 30) while the hiders search and find a place to hide. 

Because you play this game at home you need to set specific boundaries for where the kids can and cannot go while hiding. Some rooms for example can be off-limits.

The hiders should find a spot to hide where the seeker won’t be able to see them. Encourage the kids to use their creativity to come up with good hiding spots. 

Once the seeker is done counting, he should start searching for the hiders. When they find a hider, they should say “found you!” and the hider should come out of their hiding spot. The game continues until all hiders are found.

Remember to set rules and boundaries to ensure that the game is safe and fun for everyone. You can also adjust the rules to make the game more challenging for older kids or adapt it to the size and layout of your home.

7. Curl up with some Books

Curl up with some Books

Curling up with some books is a great activity for a rainy day, as it allows kids to relax, use their imagination, and learn new things.  As you read the books ask the kids questions about the characters, plot, and themes to encourage their critical thinking and discussion.

However, reading can be boring and tiring at some point, especially for young kids, so be sure to take breaks and let everyone stretch their legs. Of course, adding some extra activities to your reading can be more exciting. 

Consider adding some acting scenes from the books or ask them to draw pictures with the story. The most important thing is to have fun and enjoy the time spent together. Don’t worry too much about finishing a certain number of books.

8. Indoor Treasure Hunt

Treasure Hunt

An indoor treasure hunt can be a fun and exciting activity for kids on a rainy day. To start playing the game you need to decide which will be your prize treasure. 

However, you also need to create a series of clues that will lead the kids to the treasure. You can write the clues on slips of paper, create riddles, or even make a scavenger hunt list.

The next important step is to explain all the rules and set the house boundaries for the game. Of course, if you want to make it harder, you can set a time limit.

Hide all the clues around the house, and make sure that you leave the final clue at the place the treasure is hidden. Decide the hidden spots according to the kids’ age.

When the clock starts counting you need to give the first clue to your kids and let hen work together to find the rest. Once all of the clues have been found, the kids will be led to the treasure. 

The treasure hunt game can help them improve their teamwork and problem-solving skills.
