Rainy day activities

It’s wet and miserable outside, the kids are moaning that they’re bored and there’s not a lot to do – but don’t panic, the fun always shines at Bunn Leisure and there’s tons of things to do regardless of the weather.

 

Here are a few boredom-busting rainy day activities to get up to in your caravan…

 

 

Pizza party

Lay out pizza bases (pitta bread or wraps makes an easy pizza base too) plus lots of ingredients and ask your kids to decorate them. Once they've finished, pop them in the oven and lay a rug or picnic blanket down with some paper plates and cups. Children will love eating their home-made creations, and picnic-ing indoors.

 

 

Make a collage

Dig out magazines and newspapers and help your child cut out their favourite pictures. They can stick them on a sheet of paper to make a collage or a scrapbook. Or pick out different eyes, faces, hair and bodies and make their very own crazy person.

 

 

Write some postcards

Who says the sun has to be shining to send a postcard? Your child can write about their favourite holiday moment so far, and even design their own picture. Then once the sun is shining again head out to the post box to send it on its way.

 

 

Paper Plate Fish

Materials

  • Paper plates (2 per fish)
  • Acrylic paint in assorted colours
  • Paintbrushes
  • Scissors
  • Round adhesive labels
  • Googly eyes or buttons
  • Pencil
  • Glue

Directions

1. Decorate one paper plate as the body of the fish. Paint stripes or other designs. For scales, cut round labels in half and stick them on. Paint on an eye, or glue on a googly eye or button. Paint a mouth or cut one out.

2. On another paper plate, draw upper and lower fins and a tail. (TIP: Use rim of plate for its fluted texture. Cut out pieces. Paint; let dry. Glue to fish body.)

 

 

Toilet Roll Tube Binoculars

Take a game of eye spy to the next level with personalised binoculars. With these, your little explorers can go on an exciting expedition to wherever their imaginations take them.

Materials

  • Toilet paper rolls (3)
  • Stickers - to decorate
  • Ribbon (optional) - Length to fit over a child's head
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue

Directions

1. Cut one of the toilet paper rolls in half lengthwise. This will be the top of the binoculars. The other   two toilet paper rolls will be the eyeholes.

2. Fit the cut toilet paper roll over the top of the two rolls.

3. Decorate

4. Attach string or ribbon to each side of the toilet paper rolls.

5. Get exploring!

 

 

Splash around!

As amazing as the beach is, there are times when only a pool will do – and the onsite Oasis complex has its own tropical swimming paradise designed to bring the sunshine in.

For the serious swimmers there’s a six-lane, 25-metre pool, and for those just looking for slidy, splashy fun there’s a mega-splash water slide, lazy river and family pool.

Even the little ones have their own fountain island where they can splash to their hearts’ content.
