Active rainy day

Rainy day? Don't be afraid we have a lot of ideas to spend this day in an active way. Just move the imagination and find some free place at home.

1. Hopscotch - is a children's game that can be played with several players or alone. Hopscotch is a popular playground game in which players toss a small object into numbered triangles of a pattern of rectangles outlined on the ground and then hop or jump through the spaces to retrieve the object.

2. Homemade Twister game - The referee spins the spinner, then calls out the body part and the color that the arrow points to. For example, the referee may call out: "Right hand, red." All players, at the same time, must then try to follow the referee's directions as explained below.
Each player must try to place the called-out body part on a vacant circle of the called-out color. For [example, if the referee calls out "Right hand, red," each player must try to place a right hand on any vacant red circle.

3. Indoor bowling - If you raid the contents of your recycling bin you'll find a material to use for fun recycling games with the kids.
Using the black marker, number the bottles from 1 - 12. This will be the point scored for each bottle when it is knocked down.
Set up the bowling alley in the hallway - placing the bottles at the end.
Get kids to take turns bowling the ball, knocking over the bottles, then collecting them again in the washing basket and re-setting them for another go. You can score points or not. They'll mostly just love knocking the bottles over!
