If your child is one of those kids who are always on the move, rainy days at home can be a quite energetic, and sometimes it is difficult to get the children moving when you are trapped inside.
However this site (link at bottom) offers a number of physical activities that kids can do indoors, most involve relatively little equipment and space.
Some of our favourites include:
- Indoor hopscotch
- Game of catch with a foam ball
- Hacky sack
- Cleaning (this one is convenient for you too if you can get them interested in it!)
- Red light, green light
- Paper airplane race
- Balloon games
- Hula hoop
- Indoor bowling
