Finding Sunshine on Rainy Days

A mother’s need to take care and protect her children remains stable despite the instability of life. Through major milestones, life events, and even changes in weather, a mother’s instinct to care for her children remains intact.

Mothers welcome hot summer days for this is the best time to let kids stay out, and decry rainy days because it is not safe for their kids to leave home in uncertain weather. The key is to find sunshine on rainy days for you and your kids to enjoy.

Take advantage of rainy days and find meaningful activities to do at home. This is a great time to bond with the kids by reading books, watching movies, working on arts & crafts, and even baking favorite treats.

Creating sunshine inside your home is easy, especially with the ideas available online. Simply involving kids in organizing and even redecorating their rooms is a great bonding activity that not only fuels creativity, but also teaches responsibility.

However, mothers know that children can get restless when during rainy weekends or when classes or suspended. So here is a useful tip that keeps small hands busy and keeps them safe and clean too despite the weather.

Prepare a complete “rainy day kit” to help you be ready no matter how unpredictable the weather becomes. All it takes is a small bag, or a small plastic container that includes everything your child would need to be safe, clean, warm, and amused during the wet season. The kit must include a jacket with a hood, mosquito repellant, hand sanitizer, wet wipes, an extra set of clothes, and even small snacks. Also include compact games such as puzzles for hours of rainy day fun.

Any rainy day kit is incomplete without safe drinking water,which is essential in all kinds of weather. Mothers who wish nothing but the best for their children always include Absolute Distilled Drinking Water as part of their rainy day essentials. Give yourself one less thing to worry about by trusting only the brand certified by NSF International, a non-profit international organization dedicated to protecting and improving human health through the standardized sanitation and safety requirements.
