PARENTING: Our summer fun for rainy days

Rain is the worst when you a a little person full of energy to entertain. So finding activities to keep them entertained and indoors is a challenge.
So we ran onto on particularly horrid day and Autumn preceded to have more energy than every before (perfect timing). 

Extra lucky my husband was on annual leave so we took the opportunity to max out her energy with rainy day fun activities.

We stared with baking! Autumn loves to help and feel needed this is a perfect time for her to shine. We decided to bake cupcakes and she helped measure and stir and put in the oven, then when cooked Autumn iced them. 

Painting and messy play is always a winner specially when sprinkles (glitter) is involved. This can take hours and hours of fun and lighter in our house. We managed 3 different pictures with a tray of sprinkles and colours and it was lots of fun. 

We embarked onto temporary tattoos Autumn wanted just the one (well two but the first attempt was a huge fail on my part) so she ended up with rapunzle and felt super cool and grownup like mummy (although I can assure you most days I don't feel I adult well at all). 

Paining pit own nails..... And when o say this I mean I paint my own and Autumn is completely insistent she is well enough trained to do her own nails. I disagree but for tantrums save decided to see just how well she can paint her own nails. And to be honest she is 3 and is pretty amazing at at it considering her age. 

And finally playing dress up and having fun with wigs. I  was asked to review two wigs and Autumn and I decided the best way to start was with Dress up we pretended to be princesses and mermaid s it was a moment I will remember for ever. 

What do you do on rainy days to keep your littles ones occupied? I would love any hints and tips and if you have any posts on the subject please leave below. 

Love Aimee xx
