Rainy DayA rainy day conjures up an image of a warm drink and a conversation with a friend, a good book in front of the fire.  A lazy day inside catching up on all your shows. 

Unless you are a parent. 

Rainy days are not necessarily romantic, peaceful or perfect.
They can be dreadful, fear-inducing and to put it simply–hated.  I don’t think I even need to explain why. (But I will)

Uncivilized crazies bounce off the walls, tedious groans of boredom echo through the house.  Whiny pleas for “more screen tiiiiiiiiiimmmmmmme!” 

RAiny DayIt’s unbearable.  It’s insufferable. 

We can’t take another minute.

Mom. Dad. We gotcha covered. 

The Family Fun Twin Cities Rainy Day Guide is the playbook you need to get through a chunk of your day when you are stuck inside.  These ideas will spark imagination: whether the imagination is yours or belongs to your kiddos.  And sometimes all it takes is a little bit of effort and intention to make the day a success for everyone.
