Here at the Industrious Family’s, we enjoy many rainy days in our nice, warm, cozy living room with all kinds of rainy day activities.
The boys and Lolli play in the playroom while DaMamma, Mr B, Bee Jay, and Teen A enjoy a peaceful afternoon in the living room. Sometimes we enjoy reading books of adventure during these long, rainy days.
Other drizzly times, Teen-A spends the wet day crocheting. She loves making crocheted things for people who enjoy receiving them. This is a great way to keep busy during these soppy days.
Usually, we mix both these activities together and DaMamma will read to us while Teen-A crochets. It’s fun to imagine what is going on in the story and keep ones hands busy making gifts for people. Sometimes the little kids will play with play dough during the story.
Reading is a great time-consumer for boring, rainy days. There are many books recommended by the Industrious Family.
You can visit our book summaries page to find the book that is right for you. If you don’t own the book you find interesting and would like to read, go out and buy yourself a copy of the book.
We find the more adventurous stories far more entertaining. Reading books out loud is entertaining even to the smallest of children. There are many choices to choose from, so look at our book summary page now and find your book!
For many decades, young girls, teen-aged girls, and women have found crocheting a wonderful pastime; to some a favorite. (Such as Teen A's case.)
From hats to baby booties, scarves to headbands, baskets to pin cushions, blankets to sweaters, bookmarks to coasters, crocheted items come in a wide variety. Most delicate, lacy items are made of crochet.
Many wish they knew how to crochet, but never learned. If you are in such a position, today is your lucky day!! With the easy-to-follow videos of hopeful honey’s style, you find yourself crocheting in no time!
This is a great enhancement to rainy day activities. Don't worry if the first few projects don't turn out nice or you are a little lost. When she first started, Teen A couldn't even figure out the slip knot!! All that matters is if you are having fun!
