Rainy Day Ideas

It's Friday!  It's Friday!  It has been a chilly week in Madison and although the sun is shinning today the weekend is looking like rain.  So I thought I would share a few rainy days ideas for you and the kiddos.

Let's kick it off with this fun way to play, brought to you by  A Cup of Jo, a blog with all sorts of great ideas just like this one...


All you need is tape and toys for hours of fun!

If you are looking to make some Fall art why not get the kids involved with this Leaf Rubbing project from Filth Wizardry

Another great way to spend a rainy day is cooking with the munchkins.  Baking cookies is always a big hit.  So are rice crispy treats.  Here are some more ideas that are on my To Try list...

Crescent Pepperoni Rollups from Plain Chicken

Pancake Bites from The World According to Eggface

Or make a Mug Cake in minutes!  A fabulously fun idea from Babble

Chocolate Caramel Mug Cake 013 533x800 2 Minute Chocolate & Salted Caramel Mug Cake

I have actually made these for a casual dinner party.  They were a big hit...a little mad scientist, which everyone loved!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  See you on the flip side!
