There’s nothing more frightening to a parent in the middle of summer vacation than the dreaded rainy day. It sometimes seems like your everyday indoor activities just aren’t quite exciting enough to keep the kids occupied when the skies are grey and rain is falling.
I like to keep a few surprises on hand in the summer, just for rainy days when we can’t stand the idea of playing one more card game and we’ve used up so much screen time that our eyes are crossed. Hasbro sent us some fun items to try out that have been perfect for this purpose! Check them out! They might just be perfect for your own rainy day arsenal!
My boys are huge fans of both cars and robots, so their love of the Transformers comes naturally! The Transformers Robots In Disguise 1-Step Changer Figures, kids can switch back and forth from race cars to their favorite Transformer characters in just one quick move! It really is that easy! They love recreating their favorite scenes, battling with their robots, and racing around the kitchen floor. Plus you can scan the bot to unlock special items in the Transformers Robots In Disguise App for even more fun!
Another fun item we received from Hasbro is the Spider-Man 2099 Web Slingers Blaster. Use the included target or
set up some of your own and test your aim, flinging web blasters! My boys have a great time challenging each other to see who can knock down targets, block towers, or how far they can make their blaster fly down the hallway. With fun sound effects, this is a perfect addition to dress-up play for your favorite little superheroes. Also, check out the Spider-Man Color Shock Slinger for days when you can get outside! Whether you choose to use water or web fluid, it’s sure to be a blast!
If you have littler ones, Elefun & Friends Crocodile Dentist is a great game to keep them occupied on those days when you just can’t get outside. Play dentist to a cranky croc and be careful not to get chomped! This game was a favorite of my oldest when he was a little one and I love that it’s still around to enjoy!
