Satisfying Rainy day activities

As a maker, and DIY’er I relish rainy days, because this gives me a guilt-free day of creating.

You don’t have to be a pro to tackle these projects, plus, these are fun activities to do with your kids or bored teens.

Create a Vision Board

This is great for students and people who want a visual way to plan the future and set goals and intentions. You will need bristle board, markers, pens, magazines, or a printer.

  1. Start by writing down your goals for the year, or near future.
  2. Print off pictures from the internet, or cut out photos from a magazine, and make a collage.
  3. You can decorate as you wish, and don’t forget to add some motivational words to keep you inspired.
  4. Place the board somewhere you can see it each day.

Canva also has printable vision board templates, but I think it’s more fun to create it by hand.

Make Your Own Body Products
