Be Monsoon Ready With These Amezing Games For Kids

paperboatsIs the monsoon holding up your kids indoors? Children can really miss their outdoor playtime during rainy days. Why not make the most of these days, as there are a innumerable ways to spend time indoors as well as outdoors and have fun! So here is the list of some games for a rainy day ..

Outdoor games:

Boat Race –
We had spent hours having fun with these after the rains had receded. The fast flowing muddy water used to carry our paper boats till they were too wet to stay afloat. Teach your children to make paper boats and show them how the old game was played in the olden days! They will love playing race with their friends’ boats.


Rain Painting – Have you ever seen the pattern that rain drops make in stagnant puddles? The beautiful pattern can be replicated on a piece of paper too! Have your child sprinkle a few fat drops of paint on a white sheet of thick paper. Then ask them to walk around in a soft rain. The rain drops will make a colorful painting merging and mixing the paint in splash patterns on the sheet.

Indoor Games:

1.Billa Game – As cheesy as the name sounds, we had the most fun playing this game. Collect as many as 12 caps of cold drink bottles and arrange them in a square. Now stand at a pre-designated distance and aim a pebble at the billas on the floor. If your pebble hits the billa you pointed out to, you get a point. Maximum score wins!
