Though it may be tempting to let them watch TV all day or entertain themselves with games on your tab, a series of Indoor activities to Keep your toddler active is a more productive way to help them burn energy, exercise, and it allows you have fun and make memories with them.
Here are a few examples of fun Indoor activities to Keep your toddler active:
Sports and Games with a twist.
Reinvent your favorite outdoor sports and play it indoors. You can blow up a balloon, move some furniture around and play floating football at home. Balloons are lightweight and therefore not likely to break anything. Also, they move slowly, making it easier for your child to catch, kick or throw them. Make sure to throw away any balloon shreds if they burst as they could be a choking hazard. You can also play hide-and-seek or set up a scavenger hunt with lots of treats hidden. It will keep them occupied for a while, and they get nice rewards along the way.
Shake things up through dance.
A fun way to get your child moving is through dancing. Put on some of your child’s favorite tune and let them dance away. This also helps them develop a sense of rhythm and you, as well as other family members can also get in on the fun.
