It’s pouring like anything isn’t it? While most of us would be stuck blaming the rain for a spoil day, it is the kids who make the most of it. Dancing around in rain suddenly seems like their fav thing to do. It’s not just fun in the monsoons, rains bring with them cold, flu and seasonal impurities too. It’s easy to control new-borns from not going out in the rain, but what do you do with your curious older ones? Keeping kids busy on a rainy day is no piece of cake, especially when they tend to lose interest as fast as the clouds disappear in the sky. When the kids are bored and the weather is frightful, take out the apron, board games, scissors, paper, paint brushes, colours, glue and put on your thinking caps.
