Rainy Days and Mondays DON’T Get Us Down

One of our Home Parent Moms, Kayla Kauffman, shares what The Wright Home found to do on a recent rainy Monday in June:

Our mornings usually consist of swinging on the swing set, playing kickball or the favorite from our home – SWIMMING. However, the other day we had one of our first rainy days of the summer and it was overcast and dreary all morning.

Thus, we just came up with some activities for the kids to do inside. A generous donor provided the funds to decorate our home, so we went to Hobby Lobby and bought some frames and wall hangings. Our 17-year-old is our resident artist, and she painted two signs to hang up in either hallway; one that says GIRLS and one that says BOYS. The younger children made crafts and painted pictures. Our two-year-old son, Elijah, sat outside and painted a rock.

Playing dress up became the next rainy-day activity. The younger girls dressed up and pretended to be a country singer and a Chinese waitress. They waited on each other and pretended to bring everyone else drinks. It was really cute and a really fun way to interact with all the kids in the house at the same time.   –Kayla Kauffman

Yes – summer is a great time for sharing lots of outdoor activities together as a family. However, we do our best to make the most of each and every day, whether or not the weather cooperates!
