A rainy or snowy day means no school. It also means more time to kill at indoor games for preschoolers at school. While some parents dread such days when they don’t know what to do, some see it as an opportunity to spend quality time with their kids.
So, take a deep breath, relax, and get ready to transform a bad-weather day into a good one! Indoor games need not just be board games or card games. Neither do they have to be dull and boring! Here, we have listed out 21 indoor games and activities that are fun and engaging for children of all ages. Balance beam:Balancing beam is easier to set up than you think. All you need is some colored sticky tape, and you’re good to play for hours. Clear some space in a room and clean the floor.
Stick the length of the tape to create straight or curved lines to walk on. You can use multiple colors and have unique rules for how the child can walk on them. For example, if the tape is blue, the kid has to walk with one hand on his head, or if it is green, he has to limp the stretch. The child has to follow the rules and walk only on the tape and not on open land! The child who walks the length of the tape without stepping on the bare floor wins. Quick tip:You can make different variations of this game by using multiple colored masking tapes and creating different patterns.
You can also make it more interesting by making the child walk backward. The game exercises the child’s listening abilities by compelling them to concentrate. Collect items such as combs, vessels, remote, books, pens, bottles, toys, clocks, etc. Place the items on the table and ask the child to make a mental note of them. Take the items away and ask the kid to turn the other side or close his eyes.
Pick an item and make a sound with it. If the child guesses it correctly, he scores a point. Quick tip:You could use a blindfold to make sure the kid is not peeking! Pick a bottle, such as the one that has a wide bottom and a narrow opening. Keep the narrow opening closed with a lid, and cut the bottom to create a wide opening. Poke a small opening in the ping pong ball to insert the screw eye hook. Tie one end of the yarn to the hook and the other end to the bottle.
