 On a rainy day, snuggle up on the sofa and have a movie marathon with your children. Choose a theme or genre that everyone will enjoy and make some popcorn for a cosy day in.


2. Visit a museum

 Use a rainy day as an opportunity to visit a local museum or art gallery. It's a great way to learn something new and stay entertained indoors.
