Top 10 Fun Indoor Games For Kids
These days, the quality time that parents spend with their kids is even more valuable. How can one best spend this time? Here are the top 10 fun games kids can play indoors with their parents.
Build an Indoor Obstacle Course
An obstacle course can always be a fun game for kids when they are stuck at home. Building an obstacle course helps them to better understand directions, improve their gross motor skills, and also allows them to get some exercise. It also tests the child’s ability and interaction with other people and their surroundings.
Board Games and Puzzles
Snake and ladders? Chess? Carrom? What not! There are multiple board games that one can play at home with their kids. Puzzles are a great example. They not only keep the child engaged in a fun way, but they also improve their cognitive and reasoning ability.
Play an Active Game
At some point in our childhood, all of us would have played an active game like Simon Says. How fun was that? Do the same with your kids. Simon Says that it is fun, indeed!
Other games like Twister, water balloon games, and many more can be played indoors if you don’t mind your house getting a little bit messy.
Legos are both literally and figuratively the building blocks of your child’s mind. It’s like other fun puzzles, but instead of a picture, you build a 3D model. This helps your child understand different shapes and sizes, while having a tactile learning experience.
Go on an Indoor Scavenger Hunt
Though they require a bit of preparation, a scavenger hunt is one of the best ways to keep your child engaged in an activity. From riddles to clues, the activity can last several hours, or even a whole day. Your child’s excitement as they run around the house looking for clues and their prize will be unmeasurable.
Doing small and beginner-level science experiments with your kids can be a whole lot of fun. The awe they feel when something unexpected happens will help them develop their sense of curiosity.
Build a Fort
Building a fort of sheets and pillows can be much fun. Playing silly games in them amplifies it even more! Let your kids gather all the cardboard boxes, pillows, sheets, curtains they can find and build a fort using them. Hang up some light bulbs to illuminate it inside and wait for the fun to start.
Have a Dance Party
Fill your speakers with the most popular songs and move your body to the rhythm. Laugh and let loose as your kids fall over with laughter. Take their hand in yours and encourage them to relax because carefree dancing is one of the best ways to drive away boredom.
Exploring the five senses is very important for a child while they are young. It helps them learn to trust their instincts. So why not use that in games? Try to engage their sense of taste, touch, smell, sound, and visuals by making them a sensory box.
Grab your kid and get cooking! This is one of the best ways to engage your child and teach them a useful life skill. You can bake cookies, cakes, muffins, and more. Just make sure to keep an eye on them in the kitchen and supervise them, in order to prevent any kitchen mishaps.
These are just a few ideas. You can always invent and discover more innovative ways to engage your kids. Feel free to use any of them and have fun during this time of Covid.
