The Best Rainy-day Activities for Kids in Westchester

When the kids are home from school, there’s a lot of pressure on mom and dad to find something fun to occupy the time. Leave the kids to their own devices for too long, and you risk finding a crayon masterpiece on the wall or having to break up a sibling argument over who gets to use the iPad. Add rain to the mix, and you’re in for one long day at home.
