It’s that time of year when the weather starts to warm up, and rain showers become more frequent.
If you’re like me, you start to get excited about all the fun activities you can do outdoors.
But, if your birthday happens to fall during this season, it can be a little tricky to plan something special.
Luckily, I’ve got you covered with 25 fun and unique rainy birthday ideas that are perfect for springtime.
These rainy birthday ideas are so good that even the Grinch would approve!
Before I share, here are a few tips to consider when planning a birthday celebration in the spring.
Tips for rainy day birthday ideas for adults
Tip #1 Pick an indoor party venue from the start
No need to let the April showers rain on your parade, or in your case, your birthday. There are plenty of fun indoor activities to keep everyone entertained.
Choose an indoor party venue from the start. That way, you can avoid unnecessary stress while you’re planning your birthday celebration.
Tip #2 Accept a rain check (pun intended)
If you have your heart set on a birthday activity outdoors, but there’s a chance that it will rain, take a rain check.
For example, Amusement parks offer rain checks if it starts to rain while at the park.
Have as much fun as you can and if the weather worsens, ask park staff for a rain check.
That way you can enjoy the theme park on your birthday and also have a ticket to go back and celebrate in the future.
Be sure you let your guests know when about the rain date when you invite them to your party.
Tip# 3 Host a birthday celebration at home
Stay in the house and throw a birthday celebration at home.
Remember April is national decoration month.
If your birthday is in April, consider buying a few home accessories to redecorate one of the rooms in your home.
