It's finally summer, but the weather doesn't seem to agree. In Michigan, the weather hasn't been as great lately, and there have been a lot of rainy days even though it's supposed to be summer! I've been pretty bored some days, especially when it's raining. I'll be hanging out with friends, it starts pouring, and then our plans are ruined. So here are some ideas that will help make the best of your summer-even on the rainy days!

5. Clean

This might not be as fun as some of the other ideas, but a rainy day is a good time to be productive if you're staying indoors. Blast some music and clean your house or go through stuff in your room.

6. Play some games

Find a movie series and have a marathon with friends or family. This is especially a good one when it's pouring and if you've got all day. Grab some good snacks to go along too.

11. Do yoga or work out
