Rainy Day Crafty Ideas To Keep the Wee Ones Entertained

The school year has just begun and I am already running short on ways of keeping Acadia entertained in our 4 or 5 hours before kindergarten. Our sunny days are shorter and the cool rainy days are sneaking in.

I have resorted to Pinterest and my bloggy pals to inspire me on these long mornings.

Today we made some homemade playdough. I really like that particular recipe because it has such a smooth consistency and seems to stay nice and soft for weeks when we keep it in a ziplock bag.

I thought I might share a few more ideas if you are also caught without things to do on your cool autumn mornings.

• A great way to use those crayon nubs and scraps.
• My girls like these little inchworm likenesses of themselves.
• I just bought cornstarch to try this recipe for finger paint.

I would any other ideas you may like to share to keep my baby girl amused as the cooler weather sets in.


  1. hi hi- ok first off, I've been meaning to try that cornstarch recipe too. Hoping by friday, but that's kind of a lofty goal.

    More importantly, thanks for swinging by my blog the other week. it was good to hear from you. I was already thinking of you because I had a chance to get all updated with your blog, but ran out of time to comment. I've also been thinking about you because I got a tattoo on my foot this summer and I think you would like it ;). Hoping to have it up in a post ASAP. Mainly, just want to send you some positive vibes and tell you I'm rooting for you as you go through this new journey!!!!!

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words and positive vibes and for keeping up with me! I can't wait to see your tattoo in a bit more detail. Of course, being from Maine, I do appreciate the blue lobster :-)
