Things to Do on a Rainy Day

Has it been raining continuously, thus spoiling all your outdoor plans? While rainy weather can play spoilsport with your plans and regular routine itself, it is once a year that we get to enjoy the rains. Here is what you can do when you are stuck indoors on a rainy day, do these and never be bored again:
