Indoor Activities for Toddlers

Sensory Activities

Sensory activities are a great way to keep kids occupied inside, and they help stimulate kids’ brains too! Here are a few ideas of what to do. 

  • Homemade sand with figurines – Blended-up graham crackers are a straightforward way to make homemade sand, and it’s safe for your child to eat. Throw some dinosaurs or dolls in a bucket with the sand or even small sand toys. 
  • Shaving cream and toys – There’s no doubt shaving cream is fun to play with for children of all ages. It’s a great sensory play activity that your toddler can search for toys in!
  • Jello – Homemade jello is easy to make and fun to play with for toddlers! And it’s safe to eat. 

Balloon Games

Balloons are a cheap toy that comes with a variety of games to play. You can make up your own or use the ideas below!

  • Don’t let the balloon touch the ground. Your toddler will get rid of a lot of their energy with this game! Challenge your toddler to keep hitting a balloon upward to keep it from hitting the ground. 
  • Balance the balloon. This is an easy and fun game for your kids. They can try to keep a balloon on the back of their hand without it falling. 
  • Blow the balloon. You can set up a course in your home and challenge your toddler to blow the balloon through the system!
