Rainy Day Indoor Activities For Kids
If you don't have your craft supplies updated, I highly recommend grabbing a tote and filling it up with some must have craft supplies.
I especially like having stuff on hand for these indoor activities for kids. Things like construction paper, felt, craft foam, googly eyes, hot glue and glue gun, markers, glitter, pom poms, pipe cleaners, and washi tape are all things I have on hand at all times!
As you can see, we love crafting with the kids. There are tons of great indoor activities in this list for kids to do.
