Tuesday Ten

After a cold and rainy weekend, I'm inspired to share some of the best rainy day activities found on Pinterest, with you! Fall is here, and the rain is bound to come, so these will likely come in useful in the next weeks.

1. Marshmallow structures! Two dollars, and hours of entertainment, building all sorts of goodies with toothpicks and marshmallows. Genius! Make sure you save a few of those puffy, white bits of goodness for a cup of hot chocolate afterwards, though!

2.  Vanilla pudding + food coloring = Pudding Paint! Totally fun. Totally messy. Totally edible.


3. Bath time is always a big hit at our house. A warm bath on a cool, rainy afternoon with colored ice cubes to chase around - ten times more awesome!


4. File folders turned car ramp! My kid would probably spend hours playing with this. Mental note made.



5. Pasta necklaces were already cool, but coloring the pasta all shades of the rainbow makes it even more fun. Rainbow necklaces on a rainy day - how fitting!



6.  Aquarium treats. Jello and candy...'nuff said.



7. Recycle a plastic container and some pipe cleaners into a colorful jellyfish.



8. Laundry baskets can provide hours of fun, with a little bit of imagination :)



9. Hand and foot prints make an awfully cute lobster.



10. And lastly, the drive in movie car. A cozy movie is always perfect for a rainy day, and I just LOVE this creative idea to make it even more fun.


******I'm linking up again this week, to Miss Mommy. Check out more Tuesday ten's on her wonderful blog!

Happy Tuesday!
