What are the best indoor activities for kids?
The weather is turning, and play is turning indoors – but what can we do on days when time seems to be ticking backwards?!
Try an easy indoor activity, that’s what!
Activities are a parenting tool that I use when days need a reset, time is ticking backwards, or kids aren’t able to find their play/stop arguing for more than 15 seconds.
That’s when I reach for an activity.
Are activities mandatory with kids?
Activities are not something you need to do each day or must do to make sure your child grows up right.
Activities are what I found early on in parenting when I needed some help. Instead of melting into the day, I’d try setting up something quick and easy to reset the vibe of the house.
I learned to keep these activities in my back pocket and like a little Mary Poppins, pull them out when needed. It made (it still makes) me feel like such a champion when I can change the energy with a quick tape road.

I created this calendar (really, it’s just a table but calendar sounds better) of ideas for you.
The goal is NOT to do one activity per day.
The goal is to have ideas to do when things start to go south.
I can’t begin to tell you how empowering it feels when the ship is sicking in the house and suddenly you rescue it all with a LEGO bath. It’s life changing.
