Rainy days can be a wonderful opportunity to bond with your grandchildren when they visit. At The Manor Senior Living Communities in Little Rock and Benton, we understand the importance of creating special memories with your loved ones. Here are some fun and engaging activities you can enjoy with your grandchildren, both within your townhome and nearby.


1. Indoor Crafts and Art Projects

Unleash your creativity with some indoor crafts and art projects. Gather supplies like colored paper, markers, glue, and scissors, and create handmade cards, decorations, or even simple origami. This activity not only keeps the grandchildren entertained but also allows you to create keepsakes together.


2. Baking and Cooking Together

Spend some quality time in the kitchen baking cookies, cupcakes, or making a simple meal together. Choose easy recipes that the grandchildren can help with, such as decorating cookies or mixing ingredients. This is a great way to teach them some basic cooking skills while enjoying delicious treats.


3. Movie Marathon

Transform your living room into a cozy home theater. Pick a selection of family-friendly movies, prepare some popcorn, and snuggle up with blankets. Enjoying a movie marathon is a perfect way to relax and spend a rainy day indoors.


4. Board Games and Puzzles

Bring out classic board games and puzzles for some old-fashioned fun. Games like Monopoly, Scrabble, or Jenga can be entertaining for all ages. Puzzles are also a great way to work together and keep little hands busy.


5. Storytime and Reading

Choose some of your favorite children's books or visit a local library to borrow new ones. Reading stories aloud can be a magical experience for your grandchildren, fostering their love for books and creating cherished memories.


6. Visit a Nearby Museum

If you want to venture out, consider visiting a local museum. The Museum of Discovery in Little Rock offers interactive exhibits that are both educational and entertaining for children. It's a fantastic way to spend a few hours learning and exploring indoors.


7. Indoor Trampoline Park

For a more active option, take your grandchildren to an indoor trampoline park like Altitude Trampoline Park in Little Rock. These parks provide a safe and fun environment for kids to jump, play, and burn off some energy, even on a rainy day.


8. Create a Home Theater Play

Encourage your grandchildren to put on a play or a puppet show. Use household items to create costumes and props, and let their imaginations run wild. You can be the audience and enjoy the delightful performances they come up with.


9. Science Experiments

Engage in some simple science experiments using household items. Create a homemade volcano with baking soda and vinegar, or make slime with glue and borax. These activities are both educational and entertaining, sparking curiosity and excitement.


10. Indoor Scavenger Hunt

Organize an indoor scavenger hunt with a list of items for your grandchildren to find around your townhome. You can even incorporate small prizes for added excitement. This activity keeps them engaged and moving, even when the weather keeps you indoors.


Rainy days don't have to put a damper on your time with your grandchildren. With these fun and engaging activities, you can create lasting memories and enjoy each other's company, rain or shine. At The Manor Senior Living Communities in Little Rock and Benton, we are committed to providing a warm and welcoming environment where families can thrive and make the most of their time together.
