Summertime in the UK can mean glorious sunshine or some very rainy days! When the weather does take a turn for the worst, use it to your advantage with these ten rainy day activity ideas (and some for straight after the rain has stopped!).

Have an indoor treasure hunt

Treasure hunts are always fun to follow! All you need is a small prize for the treasure, such as gold chocolate coins, and a print out of our Indoor treasure hunt sheet. Cut out the cards on the sheet. You will need to keep one card – this will be the first clue. The picture on that card will show the children where to hunt for the next card. Make sure you place a card in each of your chosen spots. Your final hidden card will show the picture of where you have hidden the treasure! This is a game that young children can set up, either for siblings or mum or dad.
