I am going on a holiday with some other parents and their kids soon, I have created a tub of indoor craft activities as it’s likely to rain. What ideas and suggestions do you have that I could take for fun things to do should it rain. The kids range in age between 3-5 years old

  • A visit to Bunnings for cheap marked down plants and a few packets of seeds for the kids to plant. They love working out where they want to plant their finds. One of my children has a specific spot in the garden that he calls his garden-bed. We plant out the seeds and watch them grow. Buying herbs like chives and spring onions are fast and fun and the kids like to harvest for their dinner toppings. Planting in cheap plastic buckets which I have drilled holes in are great for Spinach and Parsley and Mint and with the handy handles they can be moved to catch the sun.

  • Baking was often my go to with my kids when they were younger but that can be tricky when on holidays

  • Also games like hungry hippos or twister might be fun.

  • Playdough! and some cookie cutters wtc.. so much fun for that age group and the magic marker colour in books… no mess is always a bonus..

  • Board games and kids card games for sure.

  • Some lego that they can “free build”, some puzzles, pack some waterproof overalls and gumboots and let them play in the rain or still go for walks outside.

  • Music and dance activities are also a good idea and burn up energy.

  • Board games are a must for holidays; good for kids and adults.

  • Yes plenty of board games, craft and paint activities and jigsaws ! and maybe you could book some indoor playgrounds, lollipops, bounce, bowling or so as well. I sure would take rainboots and rain coats as a walk in the rain can be lovely too !

  • Board Games & card games. Never fails to be fun for all.

  • Fun board games they can play together, cards, Lego, water based paint sets or colouring in books. You could bring some things for a movie theatre night, make up some cinema popcorn boxes and a treat table. Crafty things can be fun, but might be hard keeping the youngest kids attentions.
