Every once in a while, a Sunday “Fun” Day isn’t that. The sun is not shining, the birds are not chirping, and it’s pouring cats and dogs like there is no tomorrow. While we need the rain to survive, it sure does interfere with our plans sometimes! Working around it isn’t hard though- we stay in the home for most of our time anyway. Just put this time to productive use and make sure your family has fun while doing it!
If Sunday isn’t your day for fun family activities, make it your day for a weekly cleaning. Put on some upbeat music and have everyone handle a little chore- vacuuming the floor, cleaning tables, washing windows, dusting window roman shades, washing drapes etc. Have a little fun with your work and get it done quicker when you’re grooving to the sounds of your favourite music.
If Sunday is the only day you get to have fun with the family, then don’t let the rain stop you! Being inside the home can be just as fun as any activity outdoors. Watch a movie together and curl up with a bowl of popcorn. Play some video games and get your reflexes going. Dig out the board games out of the closet and get competitive!
Board games are a great way to pass the time and keep everyone entertained. There are games for everyone! Play a simple game of LIFE if you’re not in a strategic mood. Play some one on one Battleship if you are. Dust off your best business skills in a classic game of Monopoly- if you’re playing the right way, it does actually have an end! Board games are a great way to coax everyone out of their shells. A lot of personality and style is discovered when people have to get competitive, and it’s a great way to get to know your family. Rainy days don’t have to be a drag- liven them up with the help of your friends and family. Heck, you might even start wishing they happened on Sunday more often!
