It’s a rainy summer day here. My oldest remembers an old rainy day tradition that I had forgotten: salt dough.
Mix 2 cups flour with one cup salt. Add in 1 cup of warm water. Mix and knead. Let the children create beads, play food, doll house furniture, Christmas tree ornaments, animals, or letters. Dry out the creations in a 200 degree oven until hardened.
Then, paint them!
This activity lasts for a good hour or more with children (and their moms!).
Sometimes, rainy days aren’t so terrible.
Do you have a favorite rainy day activity?
