|FUN|christmas rainy day bag


Back in the summer I made a rainy day bag which I filled with a number of activities to get us through rainy days. You can see what we had it in originally here. I must admit I've changed things up a few times through the summer and autumn and we've used it quite a few times for rainy days or car journey, taking to friend and relatives houses etc.  It's really useful to have everything in one place to grab quickly. Especially since T seems to have upped his pace to warp mode all the time!  Everything he does is at high speed now and he can't wait for anything!

So I thought I'd change all the contents of the bag for Christmas, I think I'll do this every couple of months in the next year or so because it really has been such a godsend. 



I have added the Christmas CBeebies art magazine, I can't tell you how much T loves this magazine, I think for him it had just the right amount of arts and crafts, stickers and his favourite characters. 

I also added a set of Christmas stickers he got in his Christmas kids sticker swap last year. 

A new book has also been included, it isn't a Christmas book but it is new so I'm sure this will be a huge hit when he time comes. 



Some homemade play dough was next, along with some loose parts, a small Baker Ross ornament kit and a DVD.

I'm really pleased I have my little bag of goodies for when I need to keep T entertained, without me having to think!

What would you include?  I'm even thinking that a filled bag would make a good gift for one of T's friends for Christmas or birthday.

  1. A very clever idea, we usually refer to 'the drawer' on such days...where the colouring, glitter and dare I say...*whispers* playdough stuff...resides! I love the idea of a bag though, I've never thought of making it portable! #toddlerapprovedtuesday

  2. I love this, such a great idea. I think I will have to make one up for the Christmas period, with shopping/lunch out and visiting family it would be great to have something we can just grab! X

  3. In awe as always. When we go somewhere like the doctors or a restaurant, I am always scrabbling around at the last minute trying to find crayons etc... I really need to do this.

  4. Such a great idea. We've got a few journeys by car, plane and train coming up in in the next 6 weeks so something like this would be perfect :-)

  10. I love your rainy day bag! It would definitely keep little ones busy and that would be a perfect gift, you could get those cheap drawstring bags from Baker Ross and then let T decorate it for his friend before filling it. We need to update O's summer activity bag too. :) x #toddlerapproved
