Top Indoor Games for Kids
Staying inside doesn’t have to be boring, you can still have fun with indoor games and letting your imagination run wild. It's also a great way to get the family together and interacting with each other, because no matter how old you are games will always be a fun way to spend your time.
1. Board games
Dig out those dusty board games and bring them back to life. From Snakes and Ladders, to Monopoly, even a traditional game of Chess. It’s a great with to stimulate the brain as well as exercising your competitive side. You could also have a game of Twister, it’s not precisely a board game, but it’s a great way to get you up and stretching.
2. Indoor Scavenger Hunt
Who doesn’t love looking for treasure? Create a scavenger hunt by hiding some treats and creating a map for your children to follow. You could even incorporate some household chores for them to unlock clues. It’s a win-win situation because the kids are helping with any cleaning or tidying, and they get a treat at the end of it.
3. Play Hide and Seek
No need to explain this one! Even if there’s not a lot of spaces to hide at home, your kids will be able to prove you wrong as they fit in the tiniest and creative of spaces; that you never even knew existed. While they are hiding it also gives you a bit of peace and quiet as you try finding them. Ready or not, here we come!
Roleplay is a fantastic way to unleash your imagination, and kids love it! Set up a grocery store, enacting transactions with a helpful worker at the till, or have a tea party with all your children’s favourite toys. The more you get involved the more real the role play becomes, isn’t that right Mr Teddy?
5. Become a Super Spy
Remember when you used to build forts and obstacle courses as a kid. It’s easy to do with a bed sheet and rearranging a few pillows. Just like every spy movie, the main character must overcome some pretty crazy situations, so why not throw in a game of Lava just to really heat things up. (For anyone that doesn’t know what the lava game is, the floor is lava and you have to make your way around without touching the floor) Top Tip: Pillows make good steppingstones.
