Rainy Day?

Here are some things you can do:

Summer scrapbook

Get the creative juices flowing by creating a summer scrapbook! This requires some preparation ahead of time to collect all of the supplies, but it makes a great weekend project. Print out some favourite photos of your trip and grab some fun and bright scrapbooking supplies and you’re all set! Give your kids creative freedom to make their own page in the scrapbook and put a few together as a family. This will be a great memory for the whole family!

Movie marathon

There’s no better way to spend a few hours than by watching a good movie. Why not curl up on the couch with some popcorn and your favourite series of movies? Some great movie marathon suggestions include the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and no movie marathon would be complete without fan favourites, Star Wars and Harry Potter.


There’s nothing better on a rainy day than spending an afternoon baking a batch of cookies. If you’re looking for a recipe, why not give Stewie’s ginger cookies a try or for a gluten-free option, these Gluten-Free crispy and chewy chocolate chip cookies are delicious!

Board games

Puzzles and board games are a classic rainy day activity and they’re great for family bonding. Dust off the old Monopoly, or bring out the game of Boggle for some healthy competition and intellectual family fun! Some other family favourites include Qwirkle, Bananagrams and Candy Land.

Conversation starters

Conversation starters are a great way to get the conversation going and learn things you never knew about your family and friends! These simple prompts are engaging and fun! There are tons of options for conversation starters online to get you started.

Read a book

Cozy up with a good book and listen to the pitter-patter of the rain, or perhaps go down the Wikipedia rabbit-hole and learn something new!
