Stuck in the house with your kids and not sure how to keep them entertained? A round up of 25 at home activities for kids that require little prep including letter and number recognition, exercise, and family fun.
You know how they say the newborn stage is so exhausting? I’m here to say having an active child is way more exhausting! Do you agree?
At the end of a day home with Amelia I could fall asleep with my face in my dinner. She’s so energetic and inquisitive. With Theo on the move now too I rarely have a chance to sit down.
This is my first time being home with both kids for an extended period of time and keeping them active and engaged is challenging. I know I’m not alone. My usual activities to keep busy just aren’t enough. The idea of being inside with no way to keep the kids busy was starting to make me anxious.
Here’s the truth though – I am NOT a crafty mom. I wish I was but it doesn’t come to me naturally. I need some inspiration to get me going. I’ve compiled 25 at home activities for kids that require little prep.
What Activities Can Kids Do At Home?
Truthfully, the possibilities are endless. It depends on how much prep, mess, and supervision you want.
I wanted to compile a variety of at home activities for kids that have varying levels of involvement but little prep.
With us being inside right now I also wanted to find ways for Amelia to exercise, learn new skills, and make memories.
While I’m not a crafty mom, we love to cook together. We often pull out our favourite cookbooks and make our favourite recipes. That’s something you can do on a regular basis to get your kids involved.
If you haven’t taken a look at Busy Toddler she’s an activity genius and has SO many to choose from.
