Things to do on a rainy day

With autumn in full swing we can expect to see a lot more rainy days! If you’re stuck on things to do while it’s pouring down outside here are 8 fun, cosy activities perfect for a rainy day.

1.) Have a home movie day

Grab your blankets, make a hot chocolate, light some candles and gather up your favourite movies for a rainy day is the perfect excuse to have a cosy movie day!

2.) Go to the cinema

If you’re not in the mood to just sit at home and watch movies then check what’s on at the cinema. It’s a great way to get out of the house, without getting soaking wet, and is a fun activity everyone enjoys. Spend some time with friends or family, watch something brand new and treat yourself to some popcorn!

3.) Read a book

It may be a rainy day cliche but curling up in your PJs with a good book while its grey, wet and windy outside is so relaxing. Give yourself some time to read something new or pick up an old favourite. My personal favourite rainy day reads are Harry Potter or something from Stephan King.

4.) Do some baking

Check what ingredients you have lying around and whip up something delicious. Cookies, brownies and cinnamon swirls are all super easy things you can make and eat as soon as they come out of the oven to beat those rainy day blues.

5.) Play a board game

Put away the technology and dust off those board games! Games like Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly, Scrabble, Cluedo or any others that only really come out at Christmas are a great way to spend time with family and the hours will definitely fly by!

6.) Go for a walk

Put on your wellies, grab an umbrella and brave the outdoors! Sometimes a walk in the rain can be fun and refreshing especially in autumn. You’ll get some great pictures for Instagram too!

7.)Have a bubble bath

What could be better than running a nice, hot bubble bath, having a glass of wine, reading a book and listening to the rain outside? Put on a face mask, exfoliate, deep condition your hair and give yourself the pampering day you deserve!

8.) Netflix binge

If all else fails spending the day binge-watching a series on Netflix is always fun! Stranger Things, Gilmore Girls, American Horror Story and A Series of Unfortunate Events are all great shows to watch on a gloomy day.

What are some of your favourite things to do on a rainy day?

    Great post and I love all your suggestions! Snuggling up drinking copious amounts of coffee and burying my nose in a book is one of my fave things to do 🙂 <3 xo
