4 Fun Things to do in the Rain

When the rain won’t let up for days on end, sometimes you have to make the best of it. If you love rainy days for their ability to justify your laziness, you might want to reconsider your approach. Rainy days can bring just as much fun outside as sunny days. In fact, you may not even have to huddle under your awning or umbrella! Below I’ve listed 4 fun things to do when the rains come pouring down.

1

Splash In Puddles

Splash In Puddles

As a kid, puddle splashing was all the rave, but as an adult sitting under an awning watching the rain can seem more relaxing. However, getting up and getting a little wet can be fun and make you feel young again! All you need is some rain boots and a rain jacket and you can leave your awning behind for a more adventuresome afternoon.

Take Pictures

Take Pictures

Get geared up for a wet day and tour your city. Bring a waterproof camera along to catch pictures of you and your family or friends having a good time in the rain. Even if you live in a desert like Utah, the rains will come and you’ll have a chance to see your city in a different light. You could even get lucky with some beautiful pictures of rainbows and drops hitting your lens at just the right time.

Slip n’ Slide

Slip n’ Slide

If the rain is warm, get your suit on and prepare to get soaked to the bone. Keep some towels and other essentials under your awning and then let the kids go wild! Put up a slip and slide, waterslide and inflatable pool and use the rain to your advantage.

Go for a Walk

Go for a Walk

Grab your umbrella and step out from beneath your awning into the freshly rained upon Utah air. As we all know, rain makes the air you breathe feel brand new. The new air can help you clear your mind and regain your sense of peace. Even a walk around the block can make your Utah house feel homey and your life seem bright and refreshed.
