Summer Fun~ Rainy Day Fun~ GIVEAWAY!!

                                                  (image via indulgy.com)

As momma's we love being able to say to the kids " Go play outside!!" But every now and then, the inevitable happens... a rainy day. So here is some fun ideas for rainy day summer fun! Also.... check out the amazing giveaway at the end of the post!! It is NOT one to miss! It is definitely something fun to do on a rainy day!


Head on over to the link above, where the amazingly talented group at playful learning have made a neat post on how to make a family newspaper!! I remember doing this when I was younger... they didn't look as amazing as this though! Send your little reporters around the house to investigate and dig up some dirt on the family!


Masking tape and cars.... and off they go!!! Will entertain them for hours!!!



This is such an awesome idea!!! My little sister and I would play "balloon volleyball" for hours at our house... this is even better!!!



There are free coloring pages all over the internet!! The above link takes you to a few really cool pages you can print out! If your kids have favorite characters, do a quick google search and I'm sure you'll find something great!



The amazing, talented artist Sarah Jane at SARAH JANE STUDIOS has generously donated a very very cool thing for rainy day fun :

A Peter and the Wolf Puppet Theater! This would be so fun for the kiddos to make on a rainy day!!

Here are the rules folks!

I thought I could enter with just my email because I am not on Facebook. But when I signed in with my email address, all that came up was having to do two things on Facebook. I am disappointed.

Pam D-- let me see if Rafflecopter will let me make adjustments so that you can enter email... I'm so sorry! So many people are on facebook these days, the contest engines just make it easy for facebook people.. let me see if they'll let me change it! :) Thanks for letting me know!!
