Fun Kid Activities


Kids making christmas greeting cards

It's the oldest trick in the book, but it still works from holiday crafts to something random. Kids love to create things.

Making a Board Game

Crafts are perfect for the younger ones, but the older ones may want to make something a bit more advanced. Using old game parts challenge your child to make the best board game they can, and then play it with them later that night.

Help Them Find A Hobby

As a kid my hobby was Lego. I spent hours building cities, every kid has a different hobby they could love. It may take some time, but once you find the right hobby for your child, you are set!


Digital Ideas

  • Making TikToks
    Yes, I know... it's goofy. This one is for the older kids as well. TikTok is a great space for making creative videos. If you have a second to learn with your kid how to safely make videos, this will help distract them for days, and weeks to come.
  • Classic TV Shows Or Movies
    Now is the perfect time to find a show or movie you loved as a kid to show your kids. Even if they don't like it, it can be fun to hear what they thought of it after.
  • Video Games
    Video games no longer require an expensive console or computer, there are plenty of great games on mobile devices like phones. If you do have a console, however, they also have games that can eat up hours of time.

Going outdoors and hanging out with friends and family in nature is always a great thing to take part in. Hopefully, the weather is nice.
