25 Perfect Rainy Day Activities

Striped Rainy Day Outfit Inspiration with Wellies

Well, spring has FINALLY arrived in Chicago — the birds are chirping every morning, the blooms are out…

And the rain storms are NON-STOP. Last night it downpoured while staying bright and sunny.

Um, what?

And with rain in the forecast for Mother’s Day this Sunday too, I feel like we’re all going to be spending a lot more time indoors than we want to this spring.

So in acceptance (and even slight celebration) of our rainy weather fate, I’ve pulled together a list of some of my favorite rainy day activities! Be sure to leave a comment below with yours as well!
