35 Awesome Rainy Day Activities

You can call these Rainy Day Activities... I call them FUN whether it happens to be raining outside or not!  I've put together a collection of ideas that I would love to do with my kids and I hope it inspires you too.  Many of these ideas require some supplies you might not have on hand, so I recommend selecting a few to have ready for your next "Rainy Day"!
