Since the beginning of the pandemic, movement restrictions have made it difficult for kids to have playtime outside. Sure, the kidsgo out now and then, but not in the same unrestricted manner as before. So, we bring you a few indoor kids’ activities you can do to have a fun time with them.
Play is an essential part of personal development in children, and giving them new things to do will help them learn more, faster.
1. Start a Scavenger Hunt
Most kids love adventure, and what better way to set it up indoors than a treasure hunt. It’s super easy and exciting at the same time. All you have to do is hide clues about various items (like their toys) and string each one with the other.
At the end of the hunt, you could keep a clue that leads to a new toy or a present. It’s fun, educational, and forces them to think – everything you would want for them at that age.

2. Compete with brainteasers
Want your children to take part in group activities? Why not call their friends home and start one of the most interesting indoor kids’ activities ever? Depending on your child’s age, you can buy a book on brainteasers or pick off good ones from the internet and make a compilation.
Brain teasers are healthy, competitive and allow them to learn while playing. Plus, they do not have to be hooked to electronics all the time.

3. Host a Karaoke Night for them
Don’t you want to know if your kids are rockstars on stage? Then why not host a karaoke night – all you need is a mic and some music tracks. You can even allow them to sing freely without any instrumental assistance.
If you plan it well, these kinds of indoor kids’ activities can help your children shed those inhibitions and discover the true performer in them!

4. Make a sensory bin
Since most kids miss out on their much-needed free play outdoors, a sensory bin is an incredible hack to enable the same experience inside. All you need to do is fill a bucket with rice and hide little toy bugs and other playthings inside.
Ask them to dig their hands in the rice and find out the toys. To make things a little more exciting, you could also tell them to guess what they have picked before taking it out. This will enable them to use their sense of touch to identify things and memorize shapes!
5. Build an indoor tent
If you want to make things extra fun for them, join hands to build a tent. All you need are a few sticks and a bedsheet. Not sure how to make them?
