IT’S RAINING. NOW WHAT? RAINY DAY IDEAS WHEN RVING WITH KIDS

 

So you’ve got this great weekend planned. Your kids are excited about riding their bikes around the campground. There is a great hiking trail through the forest that leads to a crystal blue lake, a perfect place for a picnic. And maybe you’ll even take a much-needed nap in the hammock while you inhale the fresh scent of evergreens. Yes, it’s going to be a perfect Saturday AWAY in the RV.

Then it rains.

It happens. There are few things we can control in life and weather certainly isn’t one of them. The good news is there is still fun to be had. It’s one of the reasons you bought an RV. Unlike a tent, the RV comes equipped with comfort and convenience even when it rains. So don’t despair, you can still take that nap in your own cozy bed and listen to raindrops as they fall on the RV roof. (And raindrops falling on the RV sound so much cozier than falling on a house roof!) And don’t forget to look for those rainbows!

But what about the kids?

Sure, a nap may not sound as dreamy to the kids as it does to you but there are still plenty of activities to pass the time while listening to raindrops fall outside your window.
