Rainy season seems to be a very lovely weather but simply mean being cooped up inside. In this weather kids feel like restless as they are stuck indoors while raining.
When it's too raining to go outside, you'll be hearing echoes of "Mommmm . . . I'm bored!!!!"
So ask them "no need to get bore baby" with some interesting ideas. Let them engage in quiet activities such as watching movies/cartoon, playing video games, making puzzles, maybe even reading a book or two. But don't let them Be Inactive on Rainy Days by just being engaged in these quite activities. Some of the most fun they can have is playing in the rain.
So here are list of some indoor and outdoor activities:

Rainy Day Precautions
Don?t you want to take precautions against hypothermia? You will cool down radically if your clothes get wet, especially if there is any wind. Be aware of signs like shivering, clumsiness, and confusion and limit your time outside in wet clothes. Get inside and change to dry clothes immediately and warm up.
