30 Fun things to do with kids at home | Kids-Activities at home


Moms out there are seeking toddler/kids activities to keep their kids busy.

Finding things to do with kids at home could be tricky especially when they are not going to schools or nurseries or children centres for a while now.

These kids’ activities are perfect to do at home, but they need to be supervised while doing some of these activities.๐Ÿ‘‡


List of fun things to do with kids at home

Here is the list of the activities to do with your little one at home:


1. Playing with clay:

    Whether bought from the store or made at home playing with clay gives the opportunity to use their imagination and get those hands working. But the little one might put it in their mouth so it's better they play when they are supervised.


2. Indoor Bowling: 

Placing few bottles in a line horizontally and knocking them off with a ball is one of the amazing and exciting games you can play with your child at home without having to try and fit your fingers in the finger holes! (Just need few bottles and a ball)๐Ÿงด๐Ÿงด⚽ ๐ŸŽณ๐ŸŽณ



3. Play “I spy with my little eye”: 

I spy with my little eye, something beginning with the letter “R”. Can the grownups guess what is it……? It is a nice guessing game for kids. ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ


4. Balloon catch: 

Blow up balloons and let the little one play with them. Kids like catching them and tap or tossing them. Also, you can fill it up with treats like we all do at birthday parties.๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ


5. Pop those bubbles:

Kids love to go after bubbles and pop them. You can make bubble mixture at home or get it from the shop, it's always fun for kids to catch them.


6. Finger paint: 

Let them do the messy play with finger painting. So instead of a brush, they paint with their little fingers. But if you think your little one is likely to put fingers in their mouth, use pudding instead of paint.


7. Hide and seek: 

Hide and seek is one of the oldest and popular games for kids. For your younger one, its peek a boo. It is a classic one and seems never fails to entertain your kids.


8. Preparing Pretend meals: 

Let them prepare pretend meals, they will try and make those they watch you preparing for them.๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿ•๐ŸŸ


9. Sponge stamping: 

Stamping with the sponge can be a great idea to keep kids entertained. You can give a bath or kitchen sponge to kids for painting. You can get sponges of different shapes or cut it into shapes and give it to your munchkins to show his/her creativity.


10. Puddle jumping:

Yes, you heard it right. If you have a garden, then let your kid have a little fun jumping on muddy puddles with boots on like Peppa pig does. Kids love it.


 11. Pretend doctor play: 

Kids usually like to play with doctor set or like wearing a nurse outfit, let them pretend and play as if they are real doctors or nurses helping sick people get better.


12. Collecting rocks: 

We used to love collected rocks, stamps, coins, old buttons etc when we were kids. Most children love collecting things like these. A child can learn more about them, maybe it's history features whatnot. It can be a hobby of a little one as well as an older child.


13. Vegetable painting: 

Painting with different tools or things help in the eye and hand coordination, colour recognition and encourages creativity. (Okra, potato, tomato…….can be used for vegetable painting.)


14. Pop bubble wrap: 

I remember popping the bubble wrap was so much at our childhood. Let them sit and remain busy, while you can do some of your work in the meanwhile.


15. Dressing up: 

Why dressing up should be limited to Halloween or parties when then can do it at home and stay entertained. Let them dress up in costumes or old clothes,  put on your hats or wigs maybe some old jewellery to make the look better.๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’‚๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘ผ


16. Create things with a cardboard box: 

You and your little monkey can make a castle or a dollhouse with cardboard or a cardboard box could also be used to make a ramp to send the cars flying down and win the race.


17. Bake together:

Kids like putting each ingredient inside the bowl, help in beating the eggs, pouring some milk, mixing them up and licking the spoon to taste the batter.


18. Indoor picnic: 

Push some furniture and make some space spread the blanket on the floor and put some fruits and sandwiches on those disposable plates. This is a great way to enjoy breakfast or lunch together.


19. Set up a tent: 

Another incredible fun game is playing inside the tent. You just need to set a tent up and put all the toys inside it. I am sure that your toddler is going to love it and won’t like to come out of it soon. ๐ŸŽช๐ŸŽช


20. Play board games

You can also play board games like snakes and ladder, magnetic fishing game etc. with your little one.


21. Hide the toy game:

This is another fun game which you can play by hiding their favourite toy could be a teddy bear also and letting them find it.


22. Have a dance party: 

Shake some leg with your toddler in the dance party at home. Play some kid-friendly songs like “if you are happy and you know it… or “ring around the rosy”, or “head, shoulder, knees and toes”. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ


23. Indoor scavenger hunt: 

Hide a few things which you kind of mention in the list, hide them in the sofa, somewhere in their closet, or in the bathtub and let them search for it and get them moving with the list of things to find.


24. Fairy door in the garden: 

If you have a garden, you can place a fairy door in the base of the tree or maybe somewhere inside the house in a cosy place. Kids generally like to leave their drawings by the fairy door to interact with fairies.๐Ÿงš๐Ÿงš๐Ÿšช๐Ÿšช


25. Sand play: 

Let the child make sandcastles, drive their cars and dig up and hide their toys inside. Feel the grains of the sand pass through their hand.⏳⏳


26. Chalk Fun: 

Most kids like to scribble with colourful chalks either on a chalkboard or on the garden fence. It’s a fun activity for toddlers when the weather is a little bit brighter or with less downpour but never leave your child unattended with chalk, as it can cause a choking hazard.


27. Handmade jewellery:

Your kids can get creative by making a necklace or bracelet with beads or (edible) cheerio’s on shoelace or string or thread.๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ‘‘


28. Puppet show:

Have a free puppet show at home using a sock or a soft toy and act out some cool and fun scenes.


29. Make paper planes or boats:

Let the kids make paper planes and see whose planes can fly higher or remain in the sky for longer, also they can make paper boats and see if their boats float on puddles or sink.๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿšค⛵✈✈✈


30. Go gardening: 

Working in the soil can be a bit messy but it’s a lot of learning and fun at the same time. Let them plant some sprouting seeds, have a little watering can and a spade and get down to it.๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ
