Parents of young children are often looking for Indoor activities for kids. There are a number of board games available for children of all ages to play. The games geared toward the very young, will often involve counting or shape and color recognition. There are also time tested classic such as Candyland and Chutes and Ladders, which involve moving a small figure around the board and following the instructions shown on various cards and spaces. Games for kids can also come in the form of card games where the child needs to match or collect certain characters or shapes.

Puzzles have always been enjoyable activities for kids to do because they receive a sense of accomplishment when the entire puzzle is completed. These items are also available in age appropriate sizes with varying amounts of pieces. Having a sense of accomplishment can also be achieved through creating different art projects. There are a number of kits available to help kids get started making all kinds of fun creations. Bead jewelry is one of the more popular projects for girls to work on. They can easily create necklaces and bracelets by stringing colorful beads onto a wire or string.

Activities involving crafts also includes an array of plaster figurines kids can paint. These are available in kits as well as stand alone items. Model kits for cars and planes come with all the necessary pieces needed to create a small scale replica of an actual item. Parents can also find an array of plastic suncatchers children can paint with non-toxic colors as well as numerous posters and paint by number kits. Of course, art does not have to come as a kit in order to be fun. Children can express their imagination by using crayons, markers, scissors and glue on all types of paper materials.

Another fun and rewarding indoor activity is creating items using baker's clay. This is a simple modeling dough made by combining flour, salt and water. The molded items can be placed on a baking sheet and baked to make them hard. After they have cooled, they can be painted to finish the project. This is a great way for kids to create decorative ornaments using cookie cutter shapes. Other seasonal art projects include making Valentine mailboxes out of empty tissue boxes and Thanksgiving turkeys out of paper plates. Kids can make many interesting art projects using a few household items and lot of imagination.
