Yesterday, most Ocean County municipalities were just able to sneak their 4th of July fireworks in before the rain moved in and soaked the festivities. But it's one of those things that you can't avoid in the summer - it will rain, and with the kids out of school, hopefully you have some good rainy summer day contingency plans!

If you're getting out of the house, there are of course plenty of indoor activities that are great for the whole family, like The Adventure Aquarium in Camden, The Liberty Science Center, and of course Toms River's own Isectropolis.

If your plans didn't include leaving town though, there are lots of ways that you can turn a rainy indoor day into a fun family day. From arts & crafts projects, to baking up some goodies, or just even playing some good old fashioned board games as a family, there's nothing to say that you have to get out of the house to make the best of a rained out summer day.

So what's your go-to solution when rain dampens your plans? Comment below and share your ideas!
