Indoor activities for kids    

 

Fun games for kids

1.Play the endless sentence:  the first children says a word, the next repeats it and adds another, the next repeats everything from the beginning and adds an additional word, and so on, and so on.  Give a story without a tail (or a head?) 

And help for a good memory exercise for small child. 

 

2.The drawing in the mirror: take a mirror put in front of the paper and try to make a drawing wild looking only in the mirror. Never look at the paper. Make drawing or take drawing from Google image.   

 

       

 

 

3.Drawing there silhouette/picture: take paper, tape them together long enough to draw its silhouette. Ask your child to lie on it spreading their arms and legs slightly.  With a large dark felt pen, trace its silhouette. Then it’s up to him to draw himself, face, clothes, shoes, shirt nothing should be forgotten.  A good way to decorate is door or wall in their room.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If your child need to move a lot, here a game that you can make for them. I call it the tennis balloon.

4.Tennis balloon game:  Need two wood painting sticks, four cardboard plates(or cereal box cut in rond), and one or more balloon (wood painting stick) from home depot.

Glue two cardboard plate toghether (to make it more solid). Take wood stick and glue the top of the stick on the two glued plates. Do the same for the other one make two tennis rackets to play with the balloon. (better to make the raquet then to take reel less danger to brake things). So your children’s can play tennis in the house/kitchen without danger. Good game to make your children’s move in the house when it’s raining. This is one game I, as a school educator played with the children that I had in my group. We played that game four or five times a week. The kids ask for that game always.

5.Musical animal:  Play music and, the kids dance to music, when you stop the music, you show the children an animal picture, they must imitate the animal in the picture, its cry and its approach.  When you put the music back on, the children start dancing again.  When you stop the music again, you show them an other animal to imitate.

 

 

6.Hot potato:  Sit in a circle with the children.  The latter pass a potato (take a balloon/pair of socks roll together) from hand to hand, to the sound of rhythmic music.  When the music stops, the child holding the potato should sit in the center of the circle. The game then continue. If your only four to play this games then pass the patato with your feet this way the game can be a little tricky.

 

 

 

Between school, home, and activities, life can sometimes feel chaotic for children.  Help your child learn how to stop and relax with hadmade peace rocks. This activity encourages them to tap into their artistic side while creating beautiful painting on rocks.         

 

Indoor activities!           

When giving quality time to your children, it’s help them develop alot of good qualities, such as creativity, help develop autonomy. Early kids learn sush as early than two years old the best there memory develop.

  1. Nothing beats the feeling of having special moments with kids at home. However, with this lockdown, it is very much possible that everything become easily boring and uninteresting for kids quickly and that is the reason that we need to apply more tricks and funs to it. These suggestions here are great especially the endless sentences. This is great to see here and thank you.

  2. Ha, thank you so much. You’re going to be saving me from another round of boredom tomorrow because of this post. I think these are really fun activities to get involved in. I will make sure that my kids actually do this after I have made them read tomorrow. If you have any fun educational activities, I’d be glad.

    1. Thank you Riley, I appreciate your comment, I’m happy you liked it.  Yes I’m going to put some more post for game at home. If I can help parents in this time of quarantine, I’d be glad..

  3. Hi! I really liked these activities. Specially the one concerning drawing. I love drawing and I begun to draw as a kid. And I also want my kids to pick up this so during these days I’ll “challenge them”. But I think it’s cool to include a mirror in one of the challenges and only draw looking at the mirror. 🙂 Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

    1. Hello Paolo, Thank you for the comment, it appreciate.  I know about the mirror game I dided with children about 7 years old and they laugh so mush about their drawing that they play 2 hours with this game and it needed only paper and pensil.

      Thank you and ho I’ll be posting more games soon,  

      Have great day!

  4. I was planning to search for such articles but just didn’t get time. Glad I stumbled upon this one. With one toddler at home and just one computer among the three of us, it becomes quite difficult to share it in this lockdown time. I will see if I can keep him busy with these activities 🙂

    1. Hello Prav,

  5. This is a great post with some great activities for the kiddos. It is a stressful time for us all having to be indoors more often and we have to find some creative things to keep them entertained. I have tried the first activity with my kids and it is so funny trying to keep the sentence going while remembering what words were already used. I always am the one who repeats the words go figure, lol.

    1. Hello Melissa, Thank you for your comment yes it s a great activities and more to come. It is hard remembering all the words that was said before. Imagine when I had my group at school we played this game with 10, to 14 kids just remembering the 14 words was not easy so we laught alot. Try the one with the mirror if your kids are at least 4 years old.
      Thank you
