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!

MAKING A FAMILY NEWSPAPER

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!

  1. 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.
