Super-tips for a Rainy Day

Construction Paper Crafts5

Hey Supermoms! I am Kelsey from Poofy Cheeks and today I am sharing a super tip on rainy day activities! As kids my brother, sister and I spent many weekends during the summer at my grandma and grandpa’s house in Lake Mills, WI. Most of the time we were riding our bikes, swimming or searching for toads to cart around in our wagons. We lived to play outside, but then there would be rainy days that kept us inside. My grandma’s solution for a rainy day was a pack of construction paper. She would pull out the paper, scissors, crayons and glue sticks and we would be occupied all afternoon.

Now as a mom of two rambunctious boys I always keep a pack of construction paper on hand too. My boys are filled with tons of energy, and when we can’t go outside and play I need a way to keep them busy indoors.

5 Activities to do with Construction Paper on a Rainy Day at PagingSupermom.com

My two boys are four and five-and-a-half years old so I let them use safety scissors, but I still do the majority of the cutting for them. With the help of a glue stick they make construction paper collages and paper chains. When they use up the glue stick or get bored with that I introduce a piece of chalk, crayons and markers. I find that by giving them new items here and there, instead of everything at the beginning, it keeps them interested longer.

Easy Button Necklaces

Mothers Day Button Necklace

Make a Necklace for Mom from Vintage Buttons #mothersday

My cousin’s wife is super stylish. I’m always a bit envious of her fabulous outfits, many of which she sews herself. Well she has the most adorable necklace — it goes with everything because I swear she’s wearing it just about every other time I see her. Sometimes she layers it with other necklaces and sometimes wears it alone. After I couldn’t stand it any longer, I asked where she’d found such a gem. The answer: her daughter had made it by stringing a bunch of vintage buttons together! Sounds like a perfect gift for Mother’s Day or maybe Teacher Appreciation?
