Rainy Day Homemaking Storytime


Sometimes it's fun to have stories to inspire us in our homemaking. I've found that when I read old children's books I can always apply something I've learned from them. Sometimes I use them for lunch or dinner suggestions! 

These 5 short stories are from The Golden Book of 365 Stories, A Story for Every Day of the Year by Kathryn Jackson, with pictures by Richard Scarry. They teach us about: 

  • Taking time to PLAY cards or board games with your children 
  • Working side by side with your children around the home, and in the kitchen 
  • Baking cookies for (or with) your family 
  • Doing kind things for others, especially for your family members 
  • Looking on the bright side of life, and 
  • Smiling! 

Your good attitude is one of the most important things in life!

Enjoy listening while you:

  1. Make your bed
  2. Make lunch or dinner
  3. Wash dishes, and then 


If you don't have children, then do something really nice for someone else, or take some time for Self-Care, and do something nice for yourself!

May God bless you as you enjoy this beautiful day He has given you,


Prior homemaking story hours include Lucky Mrs. You and the Papa's Wife series:

And for children, a wholesome story of homelife At the Bangles House playlist of 10 chapters:

    I loved this one. I hope it’s okay that I take your idea and do some for my family.
