Rainy with a chance of forever

Can’t dress up? Watch movies or series. A rainy day is the perfect chance to catch up on unwatched movies or television series. Snuggle together, eat some snacks, keep warm, and enjoy. Bored with nothing to watch? Play with the board games that have been stuck in storage for who knows how long or even complete a puzzle with a loved one. Let the time pass while exercising your brain and having fun at the same time.

Family love is always the warmest kind of love. Make a makeshift tent or fortress in the bedroom or the living room. Bond with your kids and pretend to be kings and queens. Prepare your kids to sleep by singing a lullaby or reading them a children’s book. Tuck them in and make them feel loved. Cuddle weather is not only for lovers. Enjoy the alone time while listening to music and hugging a stuffed toy. Get sentimental or go metal.
