Sometimes rainy days won’t stay away. But Rhonda Bidart, a mom who lives in Lake of the Pines, offered the Top 10 things to do with your children on a rainy weekend:

1. Snuggle under the blankets and watch a movie together.

2. Have a slumber party in the living room.

3. Have soup and warm bread for dinner. Make sure you have a warm, cozy fire going.

4. Play hide and seek in the house. Make sure you hide in a comfortable place – you might actually get 10 minutes to yourself while they look for you!

5. Make s’mores in the microwave.

6. While you are walking, count the number of earthworms that are on the pavement (our top count is 47).

7. Put on your raincoats (nobody will notice your pajamas) and go for a walk in the drizzle.

8. Play board games.

9. Bake cookies together.

10. Stay in your pajamas all day.
