Things To Do {When It Rains}

Grrrrreat... another fantastic weekend forecast.
When are we going to get a break!?
(c'mon, Mother Nature, joke's OVER)
I know the rain is "good" for us... makes everything greener, blah, blah, blah. 
But my kids really don't care how green the grass is.
They want OUT!

We'll watch movies, there will be story-telling, play-doh, puzzles, fort-making, maybe some puddle jumping if the rain lets up a bit.  I could bake a cake.  But else can you do to keep your kids entertained and happy when they're stuck inside all weekend?
Some cheap ideas to spice up our rainy day activities would be greatly appreciated!
What was your favorite thing to do, as a kid, when it rained?
I could sort through the suitcase of old Barbies I have hidden in my room... the kids have been bugging me to do that.  Even Memphis (he's so interested in things that remind him that his Mom was a kid once too).

I'm going to try to stay positive, though.  Saturday's forecast is only a 40% chance of isolated showers... there is a BBQ being held at the daycare that I really want to bring the kids to.
Free hot-dogs, bake sale, inflatable jumpy things for the kids...
(an FYI for any local mamas that need something to do between 10 & 1 on Sat.) 
They're really looking forward to it.  I hope it doesn't get spoiled by the rain!

And because we all need a good laugh once in a while...  
These still make me giggle every time I see them.
They're legit pics I found in one of hubby's old recipe books...
