5 alternatives to watching TV on a rainy day

When it rains most of us just want to sit on the couch and watch a movie. While that can be nice, if you've got more than one rainy day in a row, watching a bunch of movies may start to feel boring. Here are a few great indoor alternatives to watching television on a rainy day.

1. Read a book


Okay so this may seem a bit obvious to some of you, but I know sometimes I forget how captivating and rewarding books can be. 

Here's a list of some great books to get you started.

2. Color


Adult coloring books have become insanely popular over the last year or so and now there are enough out there that anyone can find one to spark their creativity. 

Pro tip: instead of spending money on an entire coloring book, search 'adult coloring pages' on Google and you will find tons of printable pages.

3. Bake


Even if you think cooking is something you aren't good at, baking cookies is easy, fun and a great way to pass the time. Plus it comes with a pretty tasty end result, if you know what I mean.   

The recipe for chocolate chip cookies that is found on the back of the bag of Nestle chocolate chips is hard to beat.

4. Exercise 


Okay, so most of us have a hard time finding motivation to work out on any kind of day, but in my opinion, rainy days are great for this! It's a lot easier to be inside exercising when it's not nice outside.  

Here is a great way to exercise without leaving your living room.

5. Get crafty


We all have random stuff laying around our house, so why not use some of that stuff to flex your creative muscle on a rainy day.  And hey, if you're really feeling a movie, you can do crafts and watch a movie at the same time!

Here are some easy DIY projects to make a rainy day a little less boring.
