8 Awesome But Simple Ideas For Fun Indoor Play & Games For Kids

Fun ideas for play using only things that you’ve got lying around at home…

Entertaining our little ones 24/7 has become the new norm these days, and without the option of being able to pop outside for a walk in the park or splash on the beach, we’re having to become more creative than ever as parents to keep our kids busy. Below are some of our picks for some awesome ways to play as a family.

1. Hop On A Virtual Roller Coaster Ride

A super fun way to make your kiddies feel like they’re at the theme park (while you get to work out your arms). All you need is a TV or laptop and a laundry basket. Start playing and find plenty of virtual theme park rides here.

2. Spot The Difference

A take on the classic “Spot The Difference”, this game will challenge you to identify what has changed about a player’s appearance. Did they put on a hat, remove a sock or perhaps tucked their hair behind their ear? Get out your wardrobe and start playing.

3. Create A Town Inside A Cardboard Box
