Don't Let Rainy (Or Snowy) Days Get You Down
Admit it - there's nothing fun about rainy days, especially when there are kids in the picture. Within a few hours, it feels like everybody has come down with a serious case of cabin fever. There are ways to be prepared for the worst-case scenario. Arm yourself with these techniques for battling child boredom before it ever sets in. For starters, there's nothing like something new to keep them entertained. We suggest setting aside a few birthday or Christmas gifts specifically for these days. Whether it's an arts and crafts project or a new board game, tuck it somewhere safe in a closet and save it for a rainy day. You won't believe how quickly you can turn those frowns upside down. If you don't have a secret toy stash, it's always a good idea to keep your DVD library fresh.
