It sure seems like we have had many more rainy days this year than not. What are some good rainy day ideas for kids? Esp. for an 11 year old boy?

This is something that we've struggled with as well this year. It really hasn't been much of a summer and we haven't gotten to enjoy many of our typical activities. Not having an 11 year old, I really don't have a lot of suggestions, but some of the things that I used for my daughter could probably be used for your son as well. 1) When it is raining I let her play video games in moderation. 2) I let her have paper and art supplies to do artwork 3) Paper and a pen write a story The good thing about having a child write during the summer is that it keeps them in tune for school as well as having a creative outlet.
