Those are great ideas! We are having a rainy day here, so I think I have found some plans for the day! 🙂 Happy SITS day!
I miss those days when the kids were little and we were stuck in the house all day. Great ideas, I’ll tell my friends with little ones about it! Happy SITS day!
I love the Teddy Bear Picnic Idea! Must. Do. That. Happy SITS Day!

Happy SITS day!
Visiting from SITS. Thank you for the rainy day list. My favorite was the pj day. The girls changed in to fresh pajamas and had an indoor daytime non slumber party. Enjoy your dad.
Here from SITS. I LOVE free printables. So your section on printable games is awesome. And, okay, I have to admit that I don’t have grandchildren yet, nor do I have any children left at home. BUT, my husband and I are still young at heart and still like to “play” on our friday night dates. So, we’ll definitely be using some of your games.
Good luck in all you’re doing. AND … kudos to your husband for being willing to post a picture of himself with your son in costume! My husband never cared what anyone thought when it came to playing with our children. It’s so refreshing to see that. Not every father is willing to be a little silly to make their kids feel great. But it’s worth it in the end. All three of my children adore my husband and I know it was his willingness to truly play with them. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the inspiration! I’ve been having trouble keeping my toddler entertained on rainy days and we have just moved to a new area and don’t know anyone so playdates aren’t really happening yet but I can certainly use these ideas for our own amusement.
Love the silly photo shoot idea my kids would love this!
Great ideas! Congrats on the SITS feature!
What fun ideas!! I am so glad that I found you!! So many of your ideas remind me of my own childhood- which is perfect because I will have some good ideas to share with my munchkin!
I just joined SITS, so I’m new at all of this. It said to check out your blog as the featured blog. I’m so impressed, I love it! Great rainy day ideas 🙂
I love love love the paper bag puppet idea. my two year old LOVES hand puppets and she could create her own. Thanks for sharing the fun ideas
