Fun things to do on rainy days

Fun things to do on rainy days

Starting to tire of the cold, wet weather? Just because it isn’t nice outside, doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do!

From taking a trip to your local museum to curling up and watching a movie, there are plenty of things to do with your friends, family or even on your own.

Here are some ideas for inspiration when it comes to keeping busy in autumn and winter.

Read a book

Rainy days can create the perfect ambiance for reading so why not curl up with a good book and your favourite warm beverage?

Film night

Round up your best friends and have a movie or TV show marathon. Make some popcorn, snuggle under a blanket and enjoy a cinematic experience form the comfort of your own home.

Cook or bake

Experiment with new recipes, bake cookies, or try your hand at making some comfort food. The aroma of cooking can make your home feel even cosier than it does already!

Indoor exercise

Try yoga, Pilates, or other indoor exercises to stay active. You can find plenty of workout routines on YouTube, social media or fitness apps.

Board games and puzzles

Gather your family or friends for board games, card games, or jigsaws. It's a great way to bond and have fun together.

Art and crafts

Make the most of your time inside and get creative with painting, drawing, or crafting. You can work on DIY projects that you’ve been putting off or start a new hobby completely.

Listen to music

Create a playlist of your favourite music, listen to your local radio or discover new tunes. Rainy days are a perfect time for a bit of music appreciation.

Write or journal

Expressing your thoughts through writing is a great way to get creative and have an outlet for your feelings and emotions. You could start a journal, write poetry, or even work on a short story.

Home spa day

Treat yourself to a spa day at home by taking a long bath with bubbles or a bath bomb, doing a facial, painting your nails and pampering yourself in any other way you fancy.

Learn something new

Use the time indoors to learn a new skill or hobby. You could study a new language, take an online course, or try your hand at a musical instrument.

Organise and declutter

Use the opportunity to declutter and reorganise your living space. It can be a productive way to spend a rainy day which also makes you feel good too!


If you're a plant enthusiast, rainy days are a great time to tend to your indoor plants or start new ones from cuttings. If you have a greenhouse, this is another place you can spend time especially if you want to prepare your plants for the colder months.

Plan a vacation or trip

Use the time to research and plan your next vacation or weekend getaway. It's a fun way to escape mentally, even if you can't travel immediately.

Meditation and mindfulness

Spend some time meditating or practising mindfulness to help you relax, release stress and clear your mind.

Remember that rainy days can be an opportunity to slow down, relax, and do things you might not get around to on busy, sunny days. 

Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and make the most of your time indoors.
