Top Things To Do On A Rainy Day
The unpredictable British weather is a common conversation starter amongst Brits. Switching from bright blue skies to heavy showers the next, what we can predict is a staycation in the UK could potentially mean a day or two spent in your hotel hiding from the rain. It can be a struggle on these days to keep the whole family entertained. Don’t worry we’ve come up with some top things to do on a rainy day without having to leave the hotel.
Things to do on a rainy day
Whilst it’s raining outside make a splash inside by taking a trip down to the hotel’s pool facilities. The kids will love spending a few hours jumping in and out of the pool, whilst the adults can get a few lengths in to stay fit whilst on holiday. This is an excellent rainy day activity for burning some energy to ensure the kids rest their heads when it comes to bedtime. Why not install some competitive spirit in them and time how quickly the little ones can swim a length, reward the winner with a sweet surprise from the hotel restaurant at dinner time.
Make A Den
A childhood favourite for things to do on a rainy day, indoor den-making will bring hours of contentment and joy to your little one's faces, plus it is great fun for adults too. This is one activity you don’t even need to leave your hotel room for. This is an easy activity to organise, just use the blankets on your bed and arrange the room chairs and table to throw the blankets over. Now, it’s time to use your imagination and get inside the den for hours of playtime.
What better way to spend a rainy afternoon than to go on a treasure hunt. Kids will love this one as the excitement of searching for clues and figuring them out will keep them entertained for a few hours. Once they work out the clues, they will be rewarded with fun prizes and we all know everyone loves prizes. We’ve already done all the work for you on this one, just ask for a treasure map at reception and enjoy your pirate adventure.
Write A Holiday Diary
When the rain is pouring outside, take the spare time to pen down your holiday memories. The kids will love this one, and they will be able to look back at it years later and remember the fun family holiday you enjoyed together. Collect activity tickets from your trip and other bits of memorabilia to make your holiday scrapbook a sentimental keepsake.
