24 Super Simple Indoor Activities For Kids (Free Printable)

by Nellie

Trying to keep kids occupied is a job all unto itself. Today I’ve got some great indoor activities for kids that will keep them busy while you get your OWN stuff done!

Keeping These Kids Busy Is A Full Time Job

I’ll be honest, I never realized how much I have had to entertain my kids until now. Even pre-pandemic we were always doing something. The kids are both involved in lots of weekend extra curricular activities and of course school. 

But when you are social distancing, you are home 24/7 and it becomes tough to keep the kids busy and occupied without getting into somethings they shouldn’t be because of boredom.

This requires us as parents to think outside of the box, to maybe research movies that you think they would like or find new books. But what happens when that is simply not enough?

Here are some simple Indoor Activities For Kids that will keep them busy!
