I am a PediaCare Blog Ambassador

Now that spring is creeping up on us (hard to believe with so much snow in some places!) the rain is going to be setting in really soon. And with rain comes a lot of bored kids around the house. In our house rain generally means no backyard time, no walks, no playing in the sandbox. Even the dog refuses to step outside.  And depending on how your internet and cable is set up, it can also mean no games or curling up for a movie!

If you are creative you can come up with a ton of different ways to have fun. Shaving cream paint is one of our daily favorites (rain or shine!) or you can try your hand at colored spaghetti or oobleck.  I also created a quick and easy In House Scavenger Hunt that you can download, print off, and get to the fun! This is good for kids of all ages. If you have an older kid, just hand them a pen and let them go. If you have a younger kid, you can use the secondary printable to just look for any objects around the house that have a specific color and then write them in.



Now you can also use these printables for those days your kids get stuck at home from school being sick, but not sick enough to be in bed all day. As a PediCare Ambassador, I have spent some time this year talking to you about sick kids and great ways to handle those unexpected fevers.

I wanted to remind you to check out PediaCare Cough and Congestion for those “not feeling so good” moments our kids have! Make sure you check the box to find out the exact dosage, age, and symptoms before using to make sure this is the right medicine for your family.


You can also check out the newest video by Dr. David Hill. He talks about Fever Myths in super small videos that clear up some of that information you always thought was right. This one is about putting a child in a cold bath when they have a fever.

Do you have something you do with your kids when the weather is no good outside?

  1. I love this! I was just talking the other day about how we’ve got the middle of winter blues. I think this could apply to that as well.

  2. We love scavenger hunts. It is one of Zoe’s favorite things to do when we can’t get outdoors, which is often lately.

  3. I love to craft when the weather is bad out. Depending on the day and the level activity we had that week sometimes I like to snuggle up and watch a movie, other times we play board games. If I have a Craft- we will make it :-)

    I’ve never thought of putting together a scavenger hunt like this for my kids! What a great idea! Now you need to create a reverse scavenger hunt you create from things that aren’t in their right places. First one to put them all away correctly wins. :)
