37 Things to do on a Rainy Day


So- it’s rainy at my house. Thus, I was inspired, to write this post.  In the picture you can practically see the rain coming…. how foreboding.


1. Make Cookies- Really, who doesn’t just love cookies? 

2. Read a book. I have an upcoming post with my 100 fave books, so stick around for that. 

3. Watch a movie with movie theater butter popcorn. 

4. Have a Nerf Gun war. And if you don’t have at least one Nerf Gun, I want you to hop in the car RIGHT NOW and go to Walmart and get one. That is pathetic.

5. Build a pillow fort. 🙂

6. Spend a couple hours on Pinterest. See my Guilty Pleasures post. 

7. Get out your umbrella and play in that rain! Splash in them puddles! 

8. Make a collage. 

9. Write a song. Or try to. 

10. Sleep. Enough said. 

11. Start a blog and let me know. 

12. Write in your Journal. 

13. Play marbles on a carpet. 

14. Make soup. Who doesn’t love soup on a rainy day? 

15. Don’t shower- put your swimsuit on and take a stroll outside. And ENJOY it. 🙂

16. Watch some Youtube videos. Or Wimp.com videos. 

17. Sew something. Anything. 

18. Draw a picture. 

19. Make some sort of new decor item for your living space. 

20. Knit or Crochet a scarf or hat. Or get fancy and get inspired by Ravelry

21. Make hot cider or hot chocolate. 

22. Call a friend. 

23. Write a poem. 

24. Listen to some music. 

25. Do some Blogilates

26. Enjoy a nice, warm, long, bubbly bubble bath. 

27. HAND WRITE a snail mail letter to someone you love. And yes, I mean hand write as in your very best cursive. 

28. Scrapbook. 

29. Play some board games with friends. 

30. Clean your closet/room/house, if you are feeling productive. 

31. Make some candles or just find some candles to light. (This would be a really good idea with your bubble bath from #26)

32. Get nostalgic and look through old photo albums. Why not? 

33. Take a selfie, post it on Instagram, Facebook, Google+, or Twitter and hash tag it #egrainyday33 or tag me @EklektikGirl

34. Do some melted crayon art. WARNING: It is NOT my fault if you make a mess, just be aware that this could get disastrous very quickly…

35. Start your fireplace (if you have one) and roast marshmallows.


37. Read the Fault in our Stars and then watch the movie. But read the book first.   I still haven’t seen the movie, but I have been told to bring tissues, so consider yourself warned. 

And there you have it. What do you like to do on rainy days? Tell me on any social Media platform! 

Love, ❤ EG

    Oh, I love this post! I’m using it as a check list. I wonder if Kris would build a fort with me? 🙂 I know he wouldn’t mind if I made him cookies. Thinking I have to check out this book you mentioned, too…after I read the stack I already have at the side of my bed and then there are those on my Kindle and Nook Book. Ok, next year at this time, I will read the book you mentioned. HA HA!
