We love getting out and about even when the weather is not on our side ! It’s been really trying of late with all of the rain , good old welsh weather for you. There is so much to do even when the rain comes down –

Here are our favourite things to do when it rains – 

Muddy puddles 

Our all time favouite is jumping in muddy puddles , we get our waterproofs on and wellies and off we go. It doesn’t matter how wet we get as long as we stay quite close to home as we can just come in and get changed and sit in front of the fire. Chipmunks have a fab selection of wellies and they come in so many designs. We were recently sent a pair each for Archie and Frankie.

We were sent the Marvin wellies in 2017 Chipmunks joined forces with Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity to support them through a variety of events and promotions. The partnership was further developed to launch an exclusive pair of Chipmunks wellington boots featuring the charities mascot, Marvin the Marvellous Crocodile.

For every pair of these Marvin wellies sold, we will be donating 10% of all proceeds to the charity. I love the colours and design and the anklebiters did too! As always the quality is amazing and the fleece lined keeps them lovely an warm.


We love crafting and making things out of all sorts. I always make sure we are stocked up on crafts and we have a cupboard that we can go to on rainy days. Shops like Poundland and home bargains are always good for stocking up.


Baking is a another one of our favourite things to do on a rainy day , this time of year we are busy making gingerbread men and houses. Again here it is always good to have a supply of baking goods in the cupboard for this.

Movie days 

We also love a good movie day , we like to go traditional and have a huge selection of DVD’s to choose from. The little ones get to choose a film each. We get the duvets from upstairs and camp out on the sofa. Of course we have move snacks and popcorn too, this is when the weather is just too bad to go out.

*We were gifted two pairs of wellies for the purpose of this feature , all thoughts and opinions are my own.
