Rainy Day Schedule For Toddlers

When I see rain in our forecast, I know we will probably be spending the day inside. As a toddler mom, these are the days I look forward to the least! My little man is a BUSY boy and he loves to be on the go. I created this schedule to keep him active and happy, even on the rainiest days. If you have an energetic toddler like mine, this rainy day schedule for toddlers will help you through those long days spend indoors.

10:00 am Build

Build with anything you have around the house! Build with blocks, cups, bowls… build a tower, a fort, or an obstacle course!  

10:30 am Chores

Teach your toddler to help with daily chores. Use this time to clean up the mess from this morning. Toddler’s love helping empty the dishwasher, starting the laundry, and “sweeping”! 

11:00 am Active Play

Even if they can’t go outside, you can still find ways to get that toddler energy out indoors! Turn on music and dance, run, jump, play! Try toddler yoga on YouTube! Do an indoor scavenger hunt!

Spend some time reading a book, changing into pajamas, and winding down for nap time. Having time to be calm together before naptime will help them prepare for good sleep!
