40 Indoor Kid Activities & Crafts

Anyone else in the middle of Spring Break?  Yeah, me too!

 

It’s still pretty chilly around here so, I’ve been browsing for INDOOR ideas to help entertain the kids this week.  Want to see what I have found?  Some of these look like so much fun…..and my kids have been looking over my shoulder while browsing and are DYING to try some!

 

Maybe they’ll help you too. :)

(Plus….I threw in a few extras that I made here, in case you need a few extra ideas!)

    There is some awesome ideas in her for toddler play. I kept going down the list going I’m going to do that first … No wait this one…

  2. Christy Garrett Parenting Tips says:

    Lots of great ideas, thank you for sharing. I love that most of the activities involve recycling and uses things you already have around the house.

  3. Pat Bedard says:

    HELP! I am very new to your wonderful website filled with great projects. However, I am Grandma age and not very comfortable with using a computer. Can you tell me how to find the directions for the Spring Break projects for children. They are all so great, thank you for any help you can give me. Keep up the great work!

    1. Robin says:

      Hi Pat, on top of each project pictured there is the name of the project in red and which blog created the project. Hover your computer’s cursor over the name of the project in red, and click on it. It should take you to the page where you can find instructions and more information on the project. Have fun with them!

    Thanks!! Great ideas for Nanas and Grammas, too ;) Put some in my luggage for next time I visit my grandson, so Mom can take care of the new baby :)

  5. British American says:

    Thank you! Our spring break is next week and we’re still having winter temps. I totally need to buy 100 plastic cups for my kids. I’ve considered doing so before, but never have. Spring break might just be the reason we need.

    My son also loves making things out of ‘junk’ so the bottle cars and cardboard castle look good for him too.
