Ok, ok, rainy days can be fun for watching raindrops on the windows and making puddles to jump in. But at our house it usually doesn’t take long before frustration and boredom can creep in. TV and computer games can be a good distraction but they usually don’t last the distance. So for the days when going out seems too hard it is good to have a few winter-time activities up your sleeve.

I thought I would share some of the coolest project I have found – some are more time consuming and complex, which would be good for the little ones who thrive on a big task, and some like indoor hopscotch from (mum-of-4!) Stephanie at NieNie Dialogues, and the fake moustache from Lisa at 5 Orange Potatoes can be quick projects that can spin off with a little imagination into an afternoon of fun.

I hope they help when a back-up plan needs to be instigated fast!
