When the weather isn't so good outside; stay inside and have some fun in the warmth of your home. Here are a list of fun activities to play on a rainy day, try out these really fun games and see what you think.

One of my favourite board games of all time is the original Monopoly; it is so much fun and I love playing it with lots of people. This is a very tactical game, so think about your every move. (Remember to hide a stash of your play money, to trick the other players)

Another great game is the one and only Twister!
Have fun with other players, while twisting and turning yourself into knots - remember don't fall down, other wise, the game is over for you. (Don't take it to seriously)

If you feel like a simple, but still a really fun game, try the classic Snakes and Ladders. Play against a couple of people and try to make your way up the ladders; make sure you don't slip down the snakes. Have fun with this brilliant, but very simple classic board game.

If you ever feel like playing a creative game, try Zoob, it's great fun and you can create shapes and objects from the game pieces provided. Try being inventive, it could really help you through this game. Play with your friends and family and see who wins.

My last choice of games to play on a rainy or cold day is, Uno. Round up a bunch of people and start playing this brilliant card game. It could last up till a couple of minutes, or a couple of hours, it just depends on how fun you think this addictive game is.

I hope my top 5 games to play on a rainy day is helpful, for the next time you are bored or just want a change from the boring old rainy day blues.

Have fun!

They would be my some of my favourite games to play (as a family), on a rainy day too! You forgot pick-up-sticks, though!!! Checkers, is worthy of a mention, as is backgammon and of course, the almighty chessboard can always be brought out, too. Never to be thought of as 'retro', all of these classic games are fun to play and never go out of style; you also involve more than one person, as opposed to electronic or iphone games...which are also harder on your eyes and are more solitary. Yay! classic rainy day games. Get them out on the weekend and after all the 'boos', the kids will be fighting to join in.
