Whether it’s a classic rainy day in the UK or a national lockdown, keeping the kids entertained indoors can be a challenge for even the most seasoned of parents. But fear not, we are here to help. We've pulled together a list of fun and cheap activities for indoor playtime to keep the kids entertained all day.
1) Indoor Scavenger Hunt
Who doesn't love a good scavenger hunt? Planned correctly your little ones will be searching from noon to night. Get their imaginations running wild by placing the big wins in hard-to-find spots and try not to give too much away in the notes they find along the way. That way you can find a spare 5 minutes to pop your feet up with a cup of tea.
2) Movie Night
Bring the magic of the movies to your front room with a kids singalong movie night. With an endless selection of kids films to choose from there will be something for everyone. Deck your living room out to create your very own cinema. Why not print off some tickets, pop some popcorn and turn the lights down low. Since you are at home, anything can go! Even get the little ones to dress up as their favourite characters?!
3) Bake Off Challenge
Get messy in the kitchen with a bake-off challenge that will give Mary Berry a run for her money. Get the kids involved in making their favourite sweet treats with an icing competition at the end. Stock up on sweets to decorate their creations and fairy liquid for the clean-up mission after!
4) Have a Tie Dye Party
Pick up a Tybo Design Studio for your very own tie-dye party. This mess-free tie-dye kit is loved by both parents and children, helping them to create colourful masterpieces every time! Grab some old tops, socks, tote bags and much more and bring them back to life!
5) Hold a Paper Airplane Contest
Bring back memories of the classroom, without annoying the teacher! Grab some paper and colouring pens and get designing your paper plane. How do you win? See whose plane can fly the furthest of course!
