Board games are the next most fun activity you can have with your kids inside the house. Games like ludo, draught, payday and monopoly intrigue a lot of children and you can play with the kids while they have fun and learn interesting new skills.
Reimagination of kiddie stories:
Bring out the writer in your kids, read out a popular children’s story and when you reach the critical point, let your kids take over the plot and make up a new ending. This is a great way of letting your children express themselves and their feeling. Parents look for activities that would open-up their kids to them, this is the perfect method of doing so, and having fun at the same time.
Inside the house is the perfect environment to play hide and seek with your kids. To boost their confidence and interest in the game, let the kids hide first and you take the task of finding them.
Deliberately fail a few times and compliment your kids on not letting him win. Children get all the happiness in the world when their parents are extremely proud with their efforts.
Also, you could play game which is known by many names, I played it ass “chocolate chocolate” in my childhood. The rules are simple: in a clear room, the inspector stands on one end, and the culprits on the other. The inspector turns around and says “chocolate” three times and the culprits will have to move forward towards the inspector without letting the inspector notice the movement.
If the inspector turns back around and spots someone moving, he or she is out, the game continues until everyone is out or the inspector is taped on the back. A real fun game to let the kids show their super-spy skills.
