Indoor Fun

By Dr Bill Maier

What do you do when you’re cooped up indoors with a bunch of bored kids? That’s easy — you get creative!

Instead of mindlessly flipping through the channels, hoping something decent is on, why not turn off the television and get busy having fun?

Try designing an obstacle course with pillows and chairs, and cardboard boxes. Get a stopwatch and see who can get through it the fastest.

After that, try a game of musical chairs, hide and seek or play your favourite board game. I’ll bet it’s more fun than you remember.

When’s the last time you played tag? Or jumped rope? There are tons of great indoor games to play if you’re willing to move furniture around and make a path in the middle of the room.

If all else fails, get the kids dancing to some energetic music. Anything is better than vegging out in front of the television on those bad-weather days.
