Activities for Kids

Looking for some rainy day activities for kids? Why not encourage your kids to get creative by making up their own children songs or children stories? You could even put the songs and stories together and make them their very own kids books! But maybe they don't think of that as being fun for kids. Then encourage them to raid their closet (and maybe even yours) for some dress-up fun doing pirate activities for kids. Build a ship out of the couch pillows and hide items around the house that your kids have to find in their very own treasure hunt.

Internet Activities
Of course, you could always look for some internet activities for kids. There are some very good online educational activities. Although you may not want your children sitting in front of the computer all the time, internet games can be great rainy day activities for kids.

Seasonal Activities
Good fall activities for kids (especially when the weather is a bit too cold to go outside) include mad scientist fun! Get some kids concoctions going and encourage learning through some fun science activities for kids. Buy a mini-lab set so that your kids can mix up all sorts of potions. This is also a great party idea if you're looking for some Halloween activities for kids.

If your children really enjoy outdoor activities for kids, like tumbling down a grassy hill or balancing on the wooden sandbox ledge, then why not sign them up for a gymnastics glass? There are even circus tumbling classes that you can get them involved in, so sign them up for some fun circus activities for kids!

Opportunities for fun activities for kids abound in the summer. Petting zoos are always a big hit, as are children's museums with lots of hands-on exhibits. Or you can stick to the tried and true summer activities for kids: take them to the park, to the beach or to a local pool.

And what if your little one is only a few months old? Well, thankfully, infant activities don't have to be very elaborate to get your child involved. A game of Peek-a-Boo, clapping hands, singing songs with lots of movement (Itsy Bitsy Spider it a tried and true success) or just making funny faces will help your infant laugh and grow.
