It’s official, autumn is on its way. And as we wave goodbye to summer and prepare for the rain & cooler weather, it’s time to think about those all-important indoor activities that’ll keep your little ones entertained. From pizza making parties to creating indoor dens, here’s 5 rainy day activities that’ll keep them busy for hours…

Throw a Make-Your-Own-Pizza-Party

If there’s one thing kids love, it’s pizza. Keep them entertained and get dinner sorted by helping them to build their own pizzas. Consider buying mini aprons to really get them in the spirit, and create a pizza making station by putting all of the toppings in separate bowls. It’s an easy way to get them to eat their vegetables, and you could even offer a prize for making the silliest face with toppings. A simple activity that little chefs will love.

Build an Indoor Den

Is there anything children love more than creating their own den? Help them build their own little hideaway with blankets, throws and cushions (or even one of our foldable indoor tents). Finish with some fairy lights and you’ve created the ultimate spot they’ll love to hang out in. It’s the perfect place for reading, colouring or hosting top-secret meetings with their brothers & sisters. You could even pile in together and enjoy a movie marathon as a family.

Host Your Own Bake Off

Whether it’s a simple batch of pancakes or you’re going for Star Baker with a show-stopping cake, indulging in a little baking is the perfect pastime when it’s drizzling outside. Your little ones will love watching their precious pastries rise in the oven, and you’ll love how quiet they’ll be once they’re ready to eat. It’s a win win.

Eat Sleep Doodle

Whether they’ve a keen eye for design or they just simply love to scribble, we’ve got something for every little Picasso. From pillowcases and duvet covers to children’s placemats, these fun accessories are made to be drawn on. And the best part? They’re machine washable, so pop them in the wash and they’ll come out brand new. Your little one won’t believe their luck when you tell them to go crazy on their own bed linen!

Have a Pyjama Party

When there’s a chill in the air and it’s raining outside, there’s nothing better than a pyjama party. Wave goodbye to outdoor clothes for the day and get comfy with pyjamas that are so good, you won’t want to take them off. From unicorns & sharks to flying eggs, pick out their prettiest pair of PJs and settle down to watch your favourite films. Just don’t forget the snacks & blankets.
