What to do During April Showers in St. Peters

April showers bring May flowers, but those spring rains make it tough to know what to do on a rainy day! Whether you’re looking to stay home and be cozy or you’re ready to get out of the house you’ve been cooped up in, here are some ideas of fun things to do on a rainy day.


Bake your rainy day better by making something yummy! Go for a classic chocolate chip or maybe get ambitious and try an elaborate cake. Even the simplest recipes can brighten up your day and it’s a great activity to do inside. Bonus points if you share your baking masterpieces with friends or family!


Get crafty! A rainy day is a perfect time to start that DIY project to spruce up your space, or just for fun! Or make greeting cards for family or friends to send them good old-fashioned snail mail. If you have kids to keep entertained, this is a good way to teach them about mail and practice writing. Maybe you throw on an origami tutorial and create a zoo of paper animals.

Dance Party

Flip on some tunes and dance it out! Hosting a dance party is a great opportunity to get some energy out and get your body moving. Play DJ for yourself, your friends or family and show off your favorite songs. Enjoy those golden oldies or jam out to whatever your heart desires. No rules, just dance!

Movie Day

Take a regular movie day and elevate it! Enhance your movie experience with pillows, a blanket fort, themed snacks and maybe even costumes or décor. Pick a movie and get all decked out in movie-themed attire, put on the film soundtrack while you whip up movie-themed snacks (beyond the popcorn).
