Good morning friends!
How are y’all doing today? I’m feeling really productive today which makes me super excited for this weekend! Today we are going to talk about screen free rainy day activities that you can do with your toddler.
I honestly love staying home on a rainy day. My perfect rainy day agenda would include me sleeping in, sewing, binge watching YouTube, taking a long hot bath while reading a book, etc.. however that doesn’t work for a part- time stay at home mom with a toddler.
Below is a list of my favorite top 5 rainy day screen free toddler activities;
1.)Indoor Trampoline park
*In the vlog below you will see me taking my son to Sky Zone which is a indoor trampoline park in my area. We like to go during Toddler time so he didn’t have to worry about the big kids running into him. He loves running around and jumping on the trampoline. I get to jump on the trampoline too and get some exercising in while my son plays.
*Most libraries have some sort of story time and they also have a play space that’s appropriate for toddler age children. I love that the play space at my local library is close in so the kids can’t run off. I like to bring a book and read a couple chapters while my son plays.
3.)Mall Play Yard
*Best invention ever! My son loves to run around and climb on all the fun things that they have in the play space. I like to treat myself to almond pretzel and green tea before we go inside to play.
4.) Chick fila
*Do I really need to describe how awesome this place is? Nope I think y’all already know where I’m going with on this one.
5.) Dance Party
*To be completely honest we do this All of the time. We love using Alexa or our record player to play music and DANCE! Its good for you and your toddler to move around and its always fun to be silly. We like to dance with scarves in our home.
I hope y’all enjoyed watching us have fun at the trampoline park. I hope those 5 tips were helpful to y’all too as well. Let me know in the comments what do you do with your kids on a rainy day.
Good Morning Y’all!

I thought I would write a few blog posts for this up coming holiday season, of activities that you can do with your preschool through elementary age child(ren) rather you are a parent, babysitter, or grandparent stuck with the kids for the next two to three weeks.
