Parents know the signs all too well. It starts with “I’m bored,” and may or may not end with a sibling brawl and some light property damage. You guessed it: We’re talking about cabin fever! Cabin fever tends to strike on rainy days, especially if your kids have been cooped up for several days in a row. So what can you do to avoid a house full of pent-up energy with nowhere to go? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered at Fun-E Farm. Read on for some rainy day ideas that will save your sanity and earn you the “Best Mom” or “Best Dad” award with your kids!
Bounce the rainy day blues away
There’s no better way to while away a dreary, rainy day than a trip to our indoor bounce house in Hudson Valley Mall! Kids ages 1-12 years old love bouncing, jumping, sliding, and carousing through our inflatable bounce houses, slides, and obstacle courses. We even have a toddler area just for your little ones, so you can bring the whole family for a day of indoor fun.
Build a blanket fort movie theater
Blanket forts are a tried-and-true rainy day activity, so why not up the ante with a movie screening? Help your kids build a fort in front of the TV using pillows and blankets. Pop some popcorn and settle in to enjoy a favorite film with your kids.
Bring field day to your living room with a DIY obstacle course
Another fun rainy day activity to help kids burn off some energy is to build an obstacle course for them to run through. Be sure to make it safe for your kids and your home. Activity Corner has some great ideas, including taping balloons under a table and having your child crawl through without moving any, or rolling up a towel to serve as a “balance beam.” Of course, you can also just bring them to Fun-E Farm to take advantage of our awesome inflatable obstacle course!
