In San Diego, we pride ourselves on beautiful weather much of the year. But when it rains, everything seems to come to a standstill. It’s like we’re afraid to go out (we may melt?), but also people can be really horrible drivers in the rain so it’s just as well that we stay in.
I went online this morning to see if there were any Rainy Day activities for babies (there’s only so much Sesame Street we can watch in a day). And I thought I’d post some here real quick for other Twin Mamas in potential distress because we’re spending the day indoors.
Rainy Day Activities for Babies (from Parents.com)
*Assemble a miniature obstacle course, with pillows and hula hoops to crawl over, around and through.
*Let your baby feel different temperatures, such as a warm towel from the dryer, the coolness of an ice cube, and a warm, wet washcloth (just be sure to check the temperature first).
*Take out a new book or toy to enjoy or discover.
