Don’t let it rain on your parade! There are tons of fun things to do. Check out the public pool, or the pool at Nantucket Inn – they are both a great way to get in your beach day when it is raining on Nantucket. Whoops, you forgot to rent yourself a toy bucket? Just give me a ring and I can drop one by. Our toy buckets are full of fun toys for all ages.
The Whaling museum also has a fun and educational room that is good for all ages. You and your partner can take turns seeing the sites in the museum while the other one entertains the little ones.
Squam Swamp is also kinda fun to walk in the rain, if you have boots and things.
Here is a quick recipe for playdough – you should be able to find all these items in your Nantucket rental house.
Play Dough Recipe:
1 Cup Plain Flour
1/4 Cup Salt
3 tsp of vinegar or lemon juice
2 Tablespoons of Oil
1/2 cup of water
Food Coloring (or a packet of Koolaid)
Mix the dry ingredients in a saucepan
Whisk in the water over low heat
Mix in the vinegar
Pour in the oil
Continue to mix over low heat until it forms a playdough texture
Split up the dough, and knead in the food color (when it’s cool enough to touch)
