Rainy Day Fun

Spring in Oregon is usually raaaaiiiinnny!! So with a 4 year old who loves to play outside and DOES NOT like when she can't I have to find things for her to do inside. I usually go to Joann's Fabrics and buy a bunch of kids crafts once a month or so but I've also been scouring Pinterest for fun indoor activities. 

These look pretty easy and fun! Plus Lyla loves to watch birds. 

Six Sisters has a list of 101 cheap, easy and fun indoor activities that really sound like a lot of fun! They also have a printable version at the bottom of the list!

Lyla loves to paint, glue, cut stuff so I think she'd like this! Add color to glue.

And one of number 1 favorite things to do is play with playdo! But of course she never puts it away or puts the lid on all the way so it dries out and we have to buy more. Well that gets expensive so we're going to have to try this recipe for making some that my lovely blogger friend Rebecca tried! Jello playdough!

Have you tried any of these or do you have any more fun ideas?



  1. I totally have been meaning to pick up bird seed because one of our favorite activities is to make birdfeeders!

  2. Oh, it was so good to see you comment on my blog today. The good thing about being back is getting in touch with all of my "real" friends which of course is the blog world. (Wink) They're putting a Joanne's in out here and I'm beside myself. I love crafting with the kids even tho mine are older we still do it!

  3. I love the bird feeder, so amazing! Great idea. :)

  4. Jello playdoh?! Definitely saving this for future use!!
