Indoor activities to try

When it is too wet or too hot to go outside but you want to spend time with the kids, it’s tempting to just settle in front of the TV together and watch a movie. Here are a few indoor activities to try:

  • Bake cupcakes or cookies and decorate them
  • Build an indoor cubby out of furniture and sheets
  • Play hide and seek, sardines, or other games
  • Play dress-ups
  • Make up a story, poem or song together
