50 Things To Do On A Rainy Day

It's barely stopped raining these past two weeks, which apparently is the price we have to pay for one decent Summer's day of sunshine and scorching heat here in ye olde England.

I actually love the rain, but even I'm beginning to get bored of these dark dreary days, and getting drenched every time I need to leave the house, and I'm guessing you guys are, too. It's August; the sun is meant to be shining! We're supposed to be sunning ourselves on the beach and drinking cocktails, not reaching for umbrellas and rain coats.

If you're fed up of being stuck indoors watching the same old TV shows while the rain lashes against the windows, putting a dampener on your Summer plans, never fear; I'm here to help. I've put together a list of 50 fun things to do on a rainy day to give you guys a little inspiration, and to help you beat that boredom. Whether you want to stay home or get out and about, there are plenty of fun ways to spend a rainy day, and here are just 50 ways off the top of my head...

1. Read a book, preferably for a whole day.

  1. It surely shouldn't be raining in your part of the world right? Sounds like English summers are like Wellington ones! Going to the movies or an aquarium sounds like a perfect way to spend a rainy day, I'd probably spend a rainy day sewing, listening to podcasts and hanging with Mia.
