Make a Ball Pit

Ball pits are always filled with delight, so why not make one in the own comfort of your home? It’s also way cleaner than public ball pits. Building your own ball pit is very simple. Get an old play crib or inflate a kiddie pool and fill it with plastic balls enough to cover the area. Lastly, take a swim in your own ball pit and enjoy.

Plan a Treasure Hunt

A treasure hunt is a classic game for any occasion. It’s affordable and easy to prepare. You can also do
it in your home, backyard, or neighborhood. Spruce up your usual hunt with an exciting theme. Once you’ve decided on your theme, formulate the clues. It can be a riddle, a puzzle, or a dare; you just need to think outside the box. Lastly, don’t forget to fill your treasure box with thrilling prizes.

Camp Indoors

Whether the weather is not cooperating or staying out in the wilderness might feel a little risky for your kids, give indoor camping a shot. Minus the outdoors, indoor camping can be just as fascinating with the help of your imagination, encouraging the kids to be creative. Start by assembling a tent or a blanket fort, then add comfy pillows and sleeping bags. Place glow in the dark stars on the ceiling and hang Christmas lights for a better atmosphere. Complete your camping trip by crafting a fake campfire and cooking s’mores.
