Tips for Keeping Kids Entertained Indoors

Sometimes you may find yourself stuck indoors with the kids and wondering just how you’re supposed to keep them entertained. It’s actually easier than you may think – and you don’t have to spend a ton of money to do it either. Here are some suggestions to help you keep your kids giggling instead of climbing the walls.

Play board games

Remember back when we didn’t have all of these gadgets and smart phones and we had to physically play a game instead of one on a screen? Playing a game with the family can be done when the weather has you locked indoors, and even if the power goes out.


Picnic in bed

Throw rules out of the window and set up a picnic in bed. Kids will be thrilled to be doing something they’d never get to do, even if it’s as simple as an indoor picnic.


Storytime by flashlight

Particularly helpful if you lose power, reading stories by flashlight is a great twist on the ordinary storytime.


Dance party

Turn up the tunes and dance around- really let loose! Not only will your kids love it, but you’ll feel great afterward too!


Put on a talent show

Have one member of the family serve as the host, and each remaining members pick a talent they’d like to perform. You can make it as simple or complex as you’d like.


Maybe the weather has you house-bound for a few days, or you’re just looking to take a break from the norm. Either way, these tips can definitely get you started on the way to kicking the boredom to the curb.
