things to do on a rainy day ideas lifestyle


I hope everyone is doing great! It rained quite a lot today- not that Reenie noticed!πŸ‡…and sometimes that makes you unsure of what to do. AT ALL. And you end up not feeling motivated to do anything! So I decided to make a list of little things and projects you can have a go at doing on a rainy day!

It’s a big ol’ list!…

  1. Read a book you’ve been meaning to read/finish!
  2. Bake something chocolatey (brownies, chocolate muffins etc?)
  3. Learn a new hobby– maybe you’ve always wanted to try pottery or sculpting!
  4. Water your indoor plants– oh no, Mr Prickle needs watering…
  5. Draw Cloud the Unicorn!– Or make her a sibling πŸ™‚
  6. Write some blog post drafts– some ideas: a rambly post, inspirational quotes or even a wishlist.
  7. Play a board game with someone– or make one!
  8. Find out what national day is on your birthday!– You never know, it could be National Odd Sock Day!
  9. Start a scrapbook/journal and add photos and writing!
  10. Paint splatter on a plain old t-shirt!– flick a paintbrush with paint on it over the shirt.
  11. Grab your coat, wellies and old clothes and go for a forest or puddle walk!
  12. Re-organise your room or a room in your house– move things around, tidy + add adorable DIYs!
  13. Send a funny GIF to 4 friends– it might make their day πŸ˜‰
  14. Watch films in your pyjamas with snacks, and even close the curtains for ultimate COSINESS.
  15. Start a bullet journal– or look for some inspiration
  16. Take some arty shots of the rain or a sunset (if there is one! πŸ˜› )
  17. Learn to make some origami– a dice, rabbit or maybe a basket
  18. Throw out old books you don’t want/need anymore and donate them to charity– it’ll make room for new ones!
  19. Watch the rain. This is surprisingly fun and relaxing!
  20. Write an adventure story– do you have a character who must find several objects and solve a mystery?
  21. Repaint/redo/upcycle an old bit of furniture– be brave!
  22. Make a polaroid wall with fairy lights– mm pretty ❀
  23. Sort through your stationery!– We both know you’re secretly a stationery hoarder… πŸ˜‰
  24. Download a new game you’ve never played.
  25. Make a To-Do list and get things doneee– allow yourself 1 snack for each job you do. ❀
  26. Read a magazine then cut out pictures you like/that inspire you and make a collage on some paper or in your journal.
  27. Make a mahoosive paper aeroplane or paper hat– because. it’s. fun.
  28. Learn some jokes and tell them to friends/family!
  29. Make a list of 50 things to do on a rainy day…
  30. Get an old piece of clothing and make it into a phone case, fingerless gloves or anything else you can think of!
  31. Try out calligraphy or a new font you like.
  32. Cook a surprise meal! (I don’t think this would be a surprise for me, I take too long…!)
  33. Make a piΓ±ata for when it is sunny again!
  34. Revamp your wardrobe! Customise, organise and throw out!
  35. Do some sudokus, brain teasers or crosswords.
  36. Make yourself a DIY phone case!
  37. Papier mache something– an animal, a money bank, a bowl etc…
  38. Just doodle! Animals, food, what you did today, clothes, costumes, weather this week, first 5 objects you see in the room…
  39. Make a raincatcher and leave it outside!
  40. Make a notebook and decorate it– leave it by your bed for when you suddenly come up with ideas…this happens all the time and I’ve forgotten by the morning!
  41. Make something edible where you don’t have to bake (I loved this idea by orchidsandsweettea)
