My Top 3 Favorite Things to do During Rainy Days

Although, it still feels like summer majority of the day, I love that we’ve been getting rain showers every now and then. There’s something about this season that makes me want to just stay indoors and lie down. On the other hand, it’s the perfect time to get up and bond with my kids and husband. Just because it’s drizzling outside doesn’t mean we could not have fun anymore. I have been really busy lately, so I can’t wait to do my favorite things with the fambam.
1. The family that cooks and eats together, stays together!
When it’s not pouring, we love to play basketball and do other physical activities. When it’s wet outside like the past few days, I make time to prepare some snacks, we’d eat together and catch up on stories instead. We love cooking as much as we love eating! Strangely, I noticed that the rain somehow has an effect to their appetite (even in mine, haha!).
2. Nights of cuddling and movie marathon
Cold nights can be different and extra special. Our three boys love to stay in our bedroom. We’d stay up late in our bedroom playing board games and watching our favorite movies together. Sounds very cozy and entertaining at the same time. Even though they are already getting bigger than me, they’re still my babies. We love to cuddle until they fall asleep in my arms.
3. Teach ‘em young, bond while doing house chores
It’s good to sometimes get their minds of their gadgets, you now? Kids nowadays get bored easily and get hooked to technology. I take the opportunity, when they couldn’t go out because it’s raining, to teach them to be responsible at home. I make it a point that they get involved in household chores somehow. It’s not that easy, especially having three boys. I let them clean their rooms, wash dishes and do the laundry. 
They used to complain about our clothes smelling “kulob” when I started training them. But now that we have Downy, which helps garments stay fresh-smelling, they basically do as I say.

Indeed, we will not run out of things to do this rainy season. 

Feel free to share what you love to do with your kids in the comments section.

  1. Sa tuwing maulan... At walang pasok, favorite bonding moment namin ang magvideoke... Sinasabayan Namin Ng kanta Ang awit Ng langit hehehehe... Kaya Minsan inaasar kami na Kaya daw ataw tumigil Ng ulan Kasi ayaw Naman tumigil kumanta... Kidding aside ansarap din sa pakiramdam kapag ganyan na malakas ulan tapis walang pasok... Sakto yung lamig na dulot Ng ulan sa warmth na nararamdaman Mo sa presence nilang lahat sa loob Ng bahay. Maingay... Magulo pero MASAYA!
    Kaya Keri Lang kahit kinabukasan madami silang iiwan kalat na kailangan ligpitin, kapalit Naman nun ay madami din kaming nagawang happy memories.

  2. Para samin po ang bonding po na ginagawa namin ng mga anak ko ay ang pagkanta at pagsasayaw ng mga nursery song, like ung baby shark, chuchu TV, at kung ano ano pa.. Masarap sa pakiramdam ang pakikipagbonding sa iyong mga anak dahil mas lalo silang sumasaya kapiling kaming mga magulang nila..

  4. Ang palage naming ginagawa ng mga anak ko pag kami lang sa bahay at hindi makalabas kasi umuulan ay ang maglaro ng board games or yung mga laro sa cellphone. Minsan naman ay magvideoke kami para mas lalo umulan kasi mga singtunado. Hahaha or minsan naman ay nakahiga lang kami nagkwentuhan, tawanan at kilitian yakapan Kasi Ang sarap kayakap ang mga anak lalo na kung medyo malamig, Wala talagang makakapantay sa halik at yakap ng mga anak. Super sarap!!

  6. I love my kids! I'm a full time Single Mom sa 2 kids ko, it's not easy tlga but what I always do para less stress and lungkot, we always play, inside or outside, I bond with them tlga after my works sa bahay. We love to play habulan, may time yan eh kasi may mga times tlgang super init naman dba and khit tag- ulan, we play habulan, d naman palagi kapag tlgang pinapayagan ko sila na maligo sa ulan sinasabayan ko sila, we play in the mud, we play splashing in the water and singing pa ha hehe. Minsan naman sa kwarto lang kami kapag umuulan, we watch the rain, i sing to them, sinasabayan ako ng panganay ko and we cuddle. For me kasi kahit anong mangyari, kahit pagod nako, problemado ako, I don't do it with them, I want them to still feel complete, love palagi and care, ayoko sila malungkot kasi dba minsan rainy days are sentimental sa taong kagaya kong Single but I don't do that na, I have my kids and they love me so much just the way I love them soo much! I love Downy! mabango tlga sya and nakakadagdag pa sa sarap ng yakapan naming mag-iina. DOwny user here for almost 4 years po. Thanks for sharing your story madam!

  7. Our Top Three Favorite Things To Do During Rainy Days, like Ms Rochelle I'm a busy woman too because I go to work everyday from 10am to 7pm. But before going to work of course I have to fix our room, prepare things that need my son for the day and when I get home I check his school bag if he has homework and of course eat with him and play before bedtime so that he will feel my presence naman as his mother hehehhe. Syempre di mawala ang harutan at lambingin namin at masarap maglambingan kung ang damit ay di amoy kulob naman dib, kaya salamat sa Downy for this :)

    Here are my Top 3 Fave during Rainy Day:
    1.) Because me and my son loves the rain, we actually enjoy playing in the rain shhhh hehhe. Yes i let my son play w/ me in the rain pero syempre sandali lang para di sya magkasakit. Masarap kaya maligo sa ulan hehehhe.
    2.) Like Ms Rochelle me and my son loves to eat together, mas magana kumain anak ko pagsinasabayan ko sya kumain hehhehe katuwa. Pero syempre as part of our bonding kami rin ang nagpeprepare ng food pero simple food lang like scrambled egg, cheese sticks and of course milk and chocolate for drinks, kasi love ng son ko tumulong mag cook take note 4 years old lang sya pero mahilig tumulong sa mga ginagawa ko.
    3.) Third is we love to play with his toys specially the building block and lego because he loves to build different things. He is always excited everytime we finish build something. At his age playing is fun and exciting for him and he loves it when I join him play with his toys.

  9. Hi Ms. Rochelle! I am a Mom of 3 makukulits. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ My eldest daughter is 8 , followed by a 6 year old boy and a hyper 2years and 4 months baby girl. It's really hard being a full time stay at home Momma. Nevertheless, I enjoy being with my kids and taking care of them, tending to their needs and baby sitting. During rainy days, my children and I love to cuddle. Gustong gusto nila yung kinikiliti sila,mahilig silang magpayakap at magpa kiss. I can say na hyper talaga sila, kaya pati ako nahahawa na. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ also one of our favorite things to do is to watch cartoons. Grabe ang hilig nila sa cartoons. Kapag nanonood na sila hindi na nila agad maasikaso maligo, buti nalang hindi agad sila nangangamoy. Dahil na rin siguro sa Downy, ang bango ng damit. Long lasting yung bango. I used Downy Sunshine Fresh sa damit ng mga kids ko, sa mga clothes namin ng husband ko, I use Downy Passion. Yes,I use different variation of Downy sa mga damit namin. 😊😊😊 Iba kasi talaga pag mabango, mas feel ang lambing kasi mas close. So yan po ang favorite namin gawin together with my kids. We are so blessed to have them. Thank you as well for this opportunity to share. ❤️❤️❤️ all the best!
