Beating the rainy day blues in Grand Rapids
Rainy days are sometimes a welcomed relief from the heat, or even snow. They are a perfect excuse to get comfortable, stay in bed and enjoy a good book or a movie. On the other hand, being stuck inside all day, especially with younger children, can be a quick recipe for boredom. Whether you want to brave the weather and head outside or stay at home, there are a number of great indoor alternatives to a less than ideal forecast.
Grand Rapids, for example, is home to a vast number of venues to entertain children and adults alike. On a rainy day, there are museums, major shopping centers, shows, fitness and more as options to get out of the house and enjoy a bit of what the city has to offer.
If the rain is keeping you from driving anywhere and you’d rather get creative and turn your house into a fun place to entertain on a rainy day, all you need is an imagination for most of these activities.
-Turn your bathtub into a scuba session
-Make arts and crafts of any kind
-Build a fort in your living room, kitchen, or basement
-Watch movies and make popcorn
What does your family like to do on a rainy day?
