It looks like we have a lot more wet weather ahead of us.

Luckily, Wide Open Bluegrass has moved almost all of its performances inside, making for fun, dry and free activities for families Friday and Saturday. The N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences has its new "Extreme Mammals" special exhibit. And Notasium, a new music-based play space, recently opened in Durham.

Need some other at-home ideas to keep the kids away from screens the entire weekend? Check out these ideas:

Easy at-home science experiments

Workouts for moms (and anybody else who wants to join in)

18 indoor activities, including fort making and plastic cup tower building

Baking: Try recipes for blueberry buttermilk muffins, snickerdoodles, apple spice muffins, tortilla crisps, lemon lime soda biscuits and peach oatmeal bars.

Go Outside: If the winds aren't too high and there's no thunder and lightning, there's nothing keeping you from a walk outside or a tromp through the mud. There are all kinds of things to explore during rainy weather - worms, floating leaves, the bottom of puddles and more. Just get out there!
