Play simple games, Coloring, Dot to Dot and More
Classic games like Duck, Duck, Goose and Simon Says keep kids active and attentive. Another great thing about them is that they don’t cost any extra money and can be played just about anywhere.
Make fitness fun
Have kids try The Shoe Tie Challenge or Impossible Card Catch from the American Council on Exercise, to improve balance, confidence, and coordination. These two exercises require little to no room and equipment, and are a fun way to engage kids’ bodies and minds.
Yoga can help promote relaxation, improve muscle strength and flexibility, and teach kids to have control over their minds and bodies. Bari Koral provides resources for kids yoga activities. A Meddy Teddy - a teddy bear with arms and legs that kids can manipulate into yoga poses - is helpful for kids who are learning yoga and meditation, and for adults with limited mobility who want to demonstrate yoga or do it with their kids..
Recreate outdoor activities
Grab some masking tape and create hopscotch squares inside. Create an “indoor playground” by piling up old blankets and pillows for soft indoor climbing fun, or set up an indoor basketball game using crumpled up newspaper balls thrown into a laundry basket or a box.
