10 Kids Activities to Keep Them Busy at Home

Share This Post

During these challenging times, our children are staying at home with us, which can be a juggling act for everyone involved. Balancing work, chores, and children’s needs can be overwhelming. The main concern shared by fellow parents is the excessive screen time their children are having. To address this, we have curated a list of engaging and screen-free fun activities for children that will not only reduce blue light emissions but also allow our children to be children again. Explore our collection of fun activities for children and make staying at home an enjoyable experience for the whole family.

 

Create a Game Box 

Fill a box with a number of items your children can play with either alone or with their siblings. These items can include coloring books, puzzles, playing cards, toys and so forth. When you need to keep your kids busy, give them the box and explain that it is game box time for the next 30 minutes. They may resist at first but the more you do it, the more they’ll accept it as part of their routine. 

Dress Up 

If you have a dress-up box, pull it out and encourage the children to make some whacky outfits. If you don’t have a designated dress up box, simply make one with old hats, socks, coats, purses, shoes, dress etc. 

Camp Out 

Set up a tent and fill it with multiple items for a game of camp. Let the children set up their space with comfortable pillows and blankets. Keep them fed with healthy snacks, throw in their favorite stuffed animals for company and get some binoculars to keep a watch on those bears!

Bean Bag Target Toss 

Grab some small beanbags and a few targets for kids to throw the bags into. Target ideas include hula-hoops or laundry baskets. Keep a tally and give out little prizes. 

Bake Muffins 

Get the kiddies together and get creative in the kitchen with some baking! We recommend muffins because they are simple to make and are loved by the little ones. Here is a recipe to get you started from the Work Top. This is also an excellent opportunity to teach your kiddies some life skills as they can give you a helping hand with the clean up. 

Have a Scavenger Hunt 

On little pieces of paper give the kids the first clue, which will lead them to the next clue and so on. At the end of the scavenger hunt have some sort of ‘treasure’, which could be some treats or coupons that they can cash in later. 

Make Some Slime

If you haven’t tried making fluffy slime yet you are definitely missing out! Here is a recipe for fluffy slime that you can do with your kids!

Time to Tidy

Cleaning the room is much more appealing to kids if you can make a game out of it. Give them the space to clean, set a timer and offer a reward for the fastest or most thorough job!

Have an Indoor Picnic

Let your children pick the menu, pack a basket and set up a blanket on your living room floor. You could even use your phone to play some nature sounds for the full effect!

Rock Painting 

Create some color for your garden and provide the kids with washable paint, paintbrushes and rocks and let their inner artist be unleashed. Items can also be provided for the kids to glue on to their rocks once they’re dry such as googly eyes, feathers or pom poms. You could even encourage the kids to write little messages and leave them in their neighborhood for others to read.
