6 Indoor Boredom Busters



ACTIVITY #3: Indoor Snowball Throw


• Crumpled up tissues

• A strip of colored tape or a string

• Music player with speakers

What to Do:

Lay down a strip of masking or other colored tape, or tape a length of string to the floor. Have the children stand on different sides of the string/tape, armed with their crumpled tissues. Yell "Go," and start the music. When the music starts playing (a festive song, preferably!), the children throw their "snowballs" across the line. When the song ends, the team with the fewest snowballs on their side wins.

ACTIVITY #4: Winter Clothes Scavenger Hunt


• Socks

• Winter boots

• Hats

• Gloves or mittens

• Sweaters

• Winter coats

• Scarves

• Scraps of paper with scavenger hunt clues

What to Do:

Hide all of the children's winter outerwear in various places around the house (put all of their gloves in one place, all of their scarves in another, etc.). Write down clues to help the children find these items. As the children work together to find their clothes, they can put them on. By the time they're finished, they'll be ready to play outside!

ACTIVITY #5: Winter Waltz


• Pieces of wax paper slightly larger than children's feet

• CD player with waltzing music

What to Do:

Transform the room into a frozen pond or skating rink by having the children stand on pieces of wax paper to help them glide around as waltz music plays in the background. This works best on low-pile carpets and tile floors. To add a fun twist, have the children freeze in place when you stop the music.
