Indoor Activities for Rainy Days #TacticalTuesdays


Hi everyone it's time for #TacticalTuesdays again with Vicky and I.


If you have not joined in with this linky or need a reminder the idea behind the linky is that you share with us your Tactical Parenting posts/hacks for the week. This can be crafts, recipes, meal plans, reviews, parenting posts etc. Both old and new posts are welcome in the link up all you have to do is grab the badge at the end of the post and the rules are also stated below too.




I'm really fed up now of the dark, wet and cold days and am looking forward to spring and summer when its warmer and we will spend more of our time outdoors. For now though while there are more days of wanting to be in the warm there are some great activities you can do to pass the time. 

Cardboard box 

Kids love them and it gives them a chance to use their imagination.

Books
Children love being read to and looking at the pictures. There are also sticker and activity books children can have fun doing to pass the time. 

Puzzles and games
Blake has a wide selection of puzzles he loves. We also have a wide selection of games including Orchard toys ones which are fun, aid learning and pass the time. 

Crafts
Children love getting messy and so we have loads of craft bits including paints, glue, glitter etc. I use Pinterest to find fun craft ideas for us to do together

Music
Pop on some music and have lots of fun dancing around 

Home cinema
Pop on a family film, grab some snacks and have an at home movie session.

Indoor picnic
Throw down a blanket, set out plates, food and drink and enjoy an indoor picnic. 

Build a fort 
With blankets and cushions 

Bake
This can be as simple as decorating cup cakes and icing biscuits to making your own pizza or cake.

Play dress up
This gives children a chance to use their imagination. Who will they be today? Superman, a vet, a firefighter, dinosaur,  princess, mermaid, wizard.... 

Play dough
Play dough is a fun activity you can make your own or buy one of the many fun sets available. This is another way of getting children to be creative.

Tuff tray
We purchased a tuff tray for doing messy play in. We've used oats and water, water, jelly, cereal with diggers, Christmas decorations, shredded paper etc to make a Easter tuff spot and more. I love finding different ideas of things to do.



This week's featured  post is from Adventures of a Yorkshire mum wirh her post on the Thomas & Friends Alpha-Phonics and Flip & Learn Phone we love Thomas and his friends and these look like such fab toys for younger children to enjoy.

  1. Like the tuff tray idea. I'm sometimes too concerned with the tidying up to do much messy play. An indoor picnic is one of my favourite things to do though. #tacticaltuesdays

  2. Cardboard and indoor picnics are winners around here, although we've got a tufftray, too, and I wonder now how we coped without it! Great ideas here, thank you for sharing! #tacticaltuesdays

  3. Can you beat a cardboard box? My toddler is loving his crayons at the moment and the older two want to bake #tacticaltuesdays

  4. Our three year old loves bingo. She enjoys spinning the bowl around and the numbers coming out of the tube. Hours of fun. She also enjoys colouring, painting and play dough.
