5 Ways to Enjoy a Rainy Day with Your Tumella Compact Umbrella

Enjoy the Rain with Your Compact Umbrella

I wasn't exactly a fan of rainy days for a long time, especially if I had to go outside with the kids. Until a friend of mine reminded me of some fun rainy-day activities we did as kids. I must be honest: it took some deliberate effort. But with my Tumella compact umbrella by my side, I started to enjoy going out in the rain with my kids. This post is a friendly reminder that there is always a sunny side to a rainy day.

The Game Changer: My Compact, Windproof Umbrella

The biggest game changer for me was the fact that rain allows you to switch on other senses. Experiencing this sensory difference made me appreciate rainy days more. What also helped is having a reliable umbrella at hand that I knew wouldn't let me down (and is backed by a lifetime warranty). So, is it raining outside? Go grab your Tumella, and start smiling in the rain with this list of 5 fun rainy-day activities (with or without kids).

1. City Art Walks

When it's rainy outside, the city is one of the best places to go! If you're a fan of mural art, the rain will make the vibrant colors of city murals and street art seem to pop even more. It's a great moment to enjoy and appreciate the beauty others put out there for you to enjoy.

So put your Tumella travel umbrella in your purse and head out on an urban art exploration. The artwork will appear even more impressive. And your stylish compact umbrella will keep you dry as you discover the beauty of rain-washed streets.

Grab a hot chocolate on the go to add a little extra to your experience, and you'll be ready for that comfy, cozy feeling all around you.

2. Outdoor Photo Challenges

While you're exploring urban art, make sure to turn your rainy day into a creative photo challenge. Use your Tumella compact umbrella as a prop to complement or contrast the beautiful artwork around you.

Alternatively, a photo challenge is also a great idea if you're more of a nature lover. Capture the raindrops, puddles, and misty scenes. Whether you're an amateur or a seasoned photographer, rainy day activities like this are a chance to play with reflections, light, and rain effects, creating stunning, atmospheric shots.

If you take your kids with you on the challenge, adding an element of competition can be fun. Let everyone win a prize: for the most creative picture, the funniest picture, etc.

3. Rainy Day Markets

Visiting a local market is a fun way to spend an hour on a rainy day. Fewer people will be there, giving you the opportunity and space to explore things at ease. Equipped with one of the best compact umbrellas, your Tumella will provide a cozy shelter as you explore, making it one of the most comfortable rainy-day activities. Also, the market people will be happy to see some customers and will be more likely to have a little chat, enhancing the experience.

Especially toddlers and preschoolers tend to be overwhelmed easily by a crowd on a regular day. That's why it could be fun to explore a market with them when it rains outside, and experience the difference.

Make sure to add a little game for the kids: if they spot another Tumella by the inside designs, they'll get a treat!

4. Botanical Garden Visits

Rainy day kids activities can be educational and thrilling, especially a visit to a botanical garden. Are you ready to activate all of your senses?

As raindrops rejuvenate the plants, your family can enjoy the heightened scents and lush greenery under the protection of a Tumella. The raindrops falling on the vented canopy of your umbrella will provide a soft sound that can be both soothing and relaxing.

If there's no botanical garden near you, exploring your backyard can be a fun experience, too. You may not be a fan of all little creatures, but I'm sure your toddler or preschooler will love the earthworms, snails, and slugs that love to be out in the rain.

5. Puddle-Jumping and Playtime in the Park

Rainy day? More like a fun day! If your kids have had enough of reading or watching movies, gear up for some outdoor fun.

Make sure everybody wears rain boots and play clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. Embrace your inner child to go puddle-jumping at the park. This isn't just one of the best rainy day activities for kids; adults are welcome to splash and enjoy as well!

Tumella is considered one of the best travel umbrellas on the market, so make sure to take it with you so you can enjoy all the fun without the wet discomfort.

End the day with a hot bath, and your kids will sleep like babies, so you'll have a quiet movie night for yourself!

What are you waiting for?

Although I myself am more of a sun-lover, making a deliberate effort to enjoy a rainy day has helped me appreciate new, more sensory aspects of rain. Are you ready to go on some rainy adventures with your Tumella?
