Indoor kids activities are a great way to keep the kids occupied when they can’t go outside. We have put some fun activities together for you!
First of all, I am right there with you as far as being stuck at home. We have canceled a birthday party, Spring Break, and now possibly a graduation party.
Here are suggestions that I have found that we will be doing to pass the days while we are on a Staycation at Home!
Being at home doesn’t mean the spa visit has to end! Pick up some face masks, scented candles, fizzy bath bombs, scented lotions, fun nail polish, nail stickers, and fuzzy socks and you are good to go!
Offer the kids a bonus for whoever cleans their room the fastest! Set up a box for donations, a trash bag for the items that need thrown away.
You can download our free 30 Bags 30 Day Challenge to use as a resource.
Get creative with the reward for the child who gets done first. Give them some money, let them watch their electronics for a longer time, the possibilities are endless!
A bar full of popcorn and toppings will be a hit with you and your kids! There is nothing better than the combination of sweet and salty!
Pop up your favorite popcorn, pour it into a bowl and put out toppings in fun cups!
Toppings can be:
Peanut Butter Chips
You can also melt up some candy melts and make up a fun treat like our Galaxy Popcorn.
A slime party is another one way to help pass time during a staycation!
Toilet Paper Roll Crafts
Use up those toilet paper rolls and make fun crafts out of them! Head over to Must Have Mom and check out these easy craft ideas!
Build an Old-Fashioned Fort
Back in the day, there was nothing more fun then building a fort in your living room.
Grab some blankets, a couple of chairs from the kitchen and get creative with your fort. Once it’s finished, add in some blankets and pillows, and you are good to go!
The kids will need to snack during this time at home so get out your candy molds, glasses, and make some tasty Jell-O!
Homemade Play Dough
Wipe up some play dough, get out some cookie cutters and let the kids use their imaginations.
While you are homebound, if the weather is nice and sunny, get outside and let the kids play in their backyard. It will do everyone good to get some Vitamin D.
I don’t mean jumping in the car and heading on a road trip somewhere. Just take a drive. Pack up some snacks, grab the kid’s electronics, and hit the highway and just drive.
Family Game Time
Put the electronics away, pull the board games out of the closet and have fun playing them. Since Monopoly is one of those games that take a lot of time, there would be no better time to play it!
A staycation is no better time to get caught up those movies you’ve been wanting to see. Grab some snacks, blanket, settle into your favorite chair and watch movies together.
Give Each Other Some Space
It will be okay to let the kids go to their rooms AND for you to get some space from them too.
Education doesn’t have to stop because of the quarantine. There are a lot of great education sites that are offering free lessons to help out.
If your school district has sent some electronics from the school, set up a set time each day for schoolwork.
Bake up some yummy cupcakes and have a decorating party! You can make cute animal ones like our Penguin Cupcakes.
Make Tasty Snacks
It always seems that kids’ stomachs get larger when they are at home. Whip up some quick snacks like these muddy buddies.
Puppy Chow is a sweet snack that will quickly satisfy their snack cravings.
Design a Charcuterie Board
Whether it’s a snack filled board or a more in-depth board with cheeses, meat, fruit and bread, put your imaginations to work and create a tasty grazing board.
DIY Pizza Bar
Whip up some homemade pizza! Let the kids make up their own pizzas with their favorite toppings.
