While rainy days often lead to cancelled picnics, beach days, and morning hikes, let’s not forget how awesome it is as well to just stay at home and enjoy the cool, cozy weather with your family or your significant other. This is the time to have a cup of hot chocolate while doing these fun activities on a relaxing rainy day at home.
1. Have a movie marathon.
Going on a movie marathon is a classic rainy-day activity, but you can kick it up a notch by picking a theme. You can stream only Asian horror movies, cheesy 90s rom-coms, films set in New York City, or the entire Harry Potter franchise. Your options are endless!
2. Bake some cupcakes.
If you prefer to do something more productive, heat up the oven and bake some cupcakes or brownies. If you’re a beginner, you can start with something super simple like a loaf of banana bread. To make it even more fun, turn it into a competition with your family and have a little bake-off!
3. Organize your stuff.
If you’ve been trying to organize your things but can’t seem to find the time to do it, this is your chance to finally get it done. Start small: declutter your desk, closet, or kitchen pantry. Throw out the things you haven’t used in the last year, and come up with a new storage system for the remaining items.
4. Have a DIY spa day.
Take this opportunity to relax, unwind, and forget about work and other things that have been causing you to stress out lately. You don’t have to splurge on a trip to a fancy spa, just put on some moisturizing face mask, have a dip in the tub, and listen to the pitter-patter of the rain outside.
5. Brush up on your cooking skills.
Cooking is the perfect activity for a rainy day. Brush up on your skills in the kitchen by following an obscure recipe from a recipe book or recreating your mom’s signature dish on your own.
6. Have a tea party.
Channel your inner British royalty and have a cute tea party with your significant other (or yourself), complete with fancy teacups and mini sandwiches. Of course, tea in your trusty non-fancy mugs will do!
7. Solve a huge puzzle.
Puzzles aren’t just for kids! They’re a great way to take your mind off of your daily tasks and keep your brain sharp, especially if you’re trying to complete 500 or 1000-piece puzzles.
8. Play games.
If you have kids at home, a great way to pass the time is to play simple and makeshift games with them. Make paper planes, play hide-and-seek, or play balloon badminton indoors using balloons as your shuttlecock and just your hands as your racket!
