5 fun indoor activities to keep you and your kids entertained at home

It’s another cold and rainy day and despite all these weather changes, there are still a range of indoor ways to spend time with family. With all the hustle and bustle going on during the week, Monday from Sunday should be about recovery and quality time with those who are dear to us.

So to help you make the most of the day before work starts, weshare five fun indoor activities that will keep you and your little ones entertained:

Bring in the outside

A timeless activity that will bring your child’s soul back to life in no time, and an exciting adventure that your little ones are sure to enjoy. Whether it’s forts made of pop-up tents, blankets and pillows, or an old curtain or two, it’s a great way to hone your building skills while creating treasured keepsakes. Cover windows, turn off lights, have fun with torches and add microwave s’mores to create the perfect outdoor camping vibe (minus the mud and mosquitoes), right in the comfort and warmth of your home.

Have fun with baking

Baking is a great opportunity for your kids to express themselves creatively in the kitchen. It’s also incredibly delicious! Grab your aprons, your ingredients, and make your own dessert that lets your kids add their own bells and whistles (we’re talking lots of toppings) to a homemade cupcake or hot chocolate.

Get ready for karaoke

Does it matter if they can sing? Not really, but having a day full of carols and hit songs is a surefire way to keep your kids busy. No need to buy a karaoke machine, grab a plastic microphone and your favorite kids playlist and get ready to start playing music!

Start the puzzle

What did our great-grandparents do without a smartphone or television? We’re pretty sure that was it. Completing a puzzle is a great way for your kids to get rid of their phones and get their brain’s little wheels spinning. It’s also a fun way for the whole family to get involved, with studies showing it can help improve collaboration and cooperation skills.

Get out the board games

It’s the oldest trick in the book, but it’s almost always a pretty foolproof idea to get you and your little ones away from screens and hooked into some good old-fashioned friendly competitive spirit. Get out some Uno, Jenga or Monopoly cards and have fun for a few hours.
