Rainy Day Fun

Monsoon season will be here before we know it, and with it comes (hopefully) quite a few rainy days! I have a pretty big arsenal of "stuck inside activities" thanks to cold Prescott winters and the occasional snow day, but surprisingly, we'd never made a good, old-fashioned boxcar! I wish I could have found this old photo of my sister and me as kids- it's almost identical to the last picture in this post and would have been so fun to share. My Mom was always doing really fun project with us, and I know I say it often, but one of the coolest things about being a parent myself is being able to do many of the same things with my own children. I love those full circle moments.

This is the last post in my partnership with Fisher-Price, and I think it actually might be my favorite thanks to one part nostalgia and two parts how much the boys loved doing this project. We wanted to share a "rainy day activity" with all of you, so I took a look at all of the options FP has on their website. Their activities are organized by age, and when I saw this one I knew it would be perfect. Best of all, even though it's designed for age 4 and up, Charlie was able to participate in decorating...and the "driving" of course too.

I definitely recommend this project, and I think it also sparked some fun ideas in Henry's brain, and all night he's been talking about what he wants to make next. See the extremely simple directions over on Fisher-Price's page, and let me know if you have any favorite rainy day activities too! And while you're there, be sure to take a peek at their HUGE library of projects- there's something for every age. Happy creating! xoxo
