These Are the Most Fun Indoor Activities for Kids to Enjoy at Home

While we all love getting fresh air and sunshine, sometimes you get stuck inside. Whether it’s due to bad weather, an unexpected school closure, or some other reason, once you’re indoors, your kids can get cabin fever quickly if you’re not prepared. That's why it's always good to have a stash of indoor activities for kids at the ready.

We’ve corralled our list of favorite inside kids’ activities as a starting point. Go through the suggestions, get inspired, and buy all the necessary components so that when the clouds roll in, you’re ready to go.

As we put this list together, we tried to round up indoor activities for every type of kid. If they’re artsy, we have DIY projects and crafts. Do they like cooking? We have both easy savory recipes and desserts (and, bonus, you also get to eat whatever they whip up). For a bit of a mental boost, we have our favorite puzzles and games, too. And, when those are all exhausted, there’s nothing wrong with hunkering down with a good book, movie, or TV show.
