Active Indoor Games for Kids
The winter months can be detrimental to a child’s health. It’s easiest to just sit a child in front of the TV and snuggle up when it’s cold. However, the health of children should be a top priority, even when it’s too cold to play outside. To curb the indoor routine, here are a few games that will keep children active and healthy.
Do As I’m Doing: The parent should be first to show the children what to do. Start off with a few fun moves such as making silly faces and then progressively do actions that require more movement such as jumping up and down. Each child should have a turn.
Indoor Hopscotch: Who says you need sidewalk to play hopscotch? Using masking tape, create squares or any other way you know how to play this fun schoolyard game. Use a beanbag or other type of marker and have the children play hopscotch. Add some more fun by playing some upbeat music.
DIY Balance Beam: Break out the masking tape again and make a line for the children to balance on. A challenging way to play this is by enforcing more rules such as walking backwards or hopping on one foot.
Dance Parties: A lot of kids like to embrace their inner dancer. It’s the easiest one to set up since it only requires a music device. Everyone wins. Blast their favorite tunes and the children will have had a workout without even know it.
Being indoors doesn’t mean kids have to be inactive. Get the creative juices flowing and the little ones off the couch!
