Indoor Boredom Busters for Kids

What do you do with your kids when we have to play inside? Rather than plug them in front of a tablet or TV, offer your child activities that will keep their minds and bodies engaged and having fun. Check out these 10 indoor boredom busters for kids, perfect for when something interrupts your playtime schedule.

  1. Arts and crafts. Break out the glitter, glue, and pipe cleaner and let your child’s imagination go wild. If they’re stumped on what to create, keep an eye on our weekly posts for fun and easy projects! Save yourself time on the cleanup by laying down some plastic or butcher paper.
  2. Create age-appropriate sensory bins. Sensory bins are a great boredom busting activity and can keep your little ones entertained for hours as they explore the items.
  3. Get up and get moving, indoors. Sometimes the kids need to get up and burn some energy, which can be a bit difficult if they’re stuck indoors. Dance parties, animal charades, balloon games and creating an indoor obstacle course, are just a few of the many ways to get the kids moving in your very own living room.
  4. Whip up a batch of homemade slime or play-dough. Not only will your child love creating one of these sticky recipes, they’ll also have fun playing with it. Store your homemade slime in a plastic box or tupperware. Check out these safe slime recipes to get started!
  5. Get the band back together with homemade instruments! Grab some empty cans (just make sure the edges aren’t sharp for little hands), some toilet paper rolls, and rubber bands and you have yourself enough items to make a little mini band. Check out these DIY instruments for inspiration!
  6. Head on over to the kitchen and make a yummy treat. Whether you opt to make cookies, a smoothie, or even a meal, getting kids involved in the kitchen has a lot of benefits including building math, reading, and comprehension skills! Not only that, but you’re teaching them a skill to last a lifetime.
  7. Play dress up! Grab some old items out of your closet or the donation pile and let your kids have fun playing dress up. It will be a blast seeing your little ones in your old threads!
  8. Give your child a brain boost with one of these science experiments. Make the fun last by hosting a “show” for your child to share their results. Not only will your child learn something new, they’ll also have fun creating something exciting!
