  1. I love this list of rainy day activities! The idea of making a rain catcher so that you can measure the rain is fab! Our go to activities are arts and crafts and cooking. It can be a challenge to think of things when it’s raining and the kids are complaining that they’re bored. I worry about the impact that too much screen time has on kids, so we have a boredom jar that they can pick an idea from. I wrote a blog post about it that you might like https://squidgydoodle.co.uk/screentime/
