best indoor games for parents to play with kids

Despite having rooms full of the many toys you have bought them over the years, kids still get bored and restless when stuck inside for excessive heat or a rainy day. 

So what can a parent do during another day when the kids want to go outside to release pent-up energy? 
Thankfully, there are so many indoor games. Besides, playing inside will allow parents to keep a close watch on their kids while doing other work.
Some of those are:

Treasure Hunt

Everyone loves a good treasure hunt, even parents! This activity may take some prearranged planning to develop clues and place the items in the appropriate spot. 
You may choose for there to be one end goal prize, or for there to be several items placed all throughout and found with each clue. 
Regardless, clues should be age appropriate and educational.

Hide and Seek

No list of indoor games would be complete without Hide and Seek, now would it? 
In this classic game, one person (“It”) covers his or her eyes and counts aloud while the other players hide. 
When “It” is finished counting, he or she begins looking for the hiders. 

Pencil and paper game

This pencil and paper game is definitely doable without purchasing the store version, and allows kids to express themselves by making it their own. 
Find or create some graph paper, at least two pieces per player. 
After marking the grid paper appropriately with identifying makers letters down one axis and numbers on the other kids should begin drawing in where their battleships are being placed on one of the grids. 
The other grid will be used to mark the ‘hits’ and ‘misses’ as they continue throughout the game. 
Kids exercise mathematical and strategy thinking as they continue to guess and decide where each ship is located.

The Leaf Hunt

This can be done by kids from ages 5-12.
Pick an outdoor area green area like a park or a garden where you are comfortable sending the kids on their own. 
Now, leave the kids indoors while you secretly go and pick leaves from different trees/plants/bushes one leaf for each child. 
Hand the kids a container with these leaves and let them loose in the green area. 
The idea is for them to match the leaves they are carrying with those growing on the plants/trees. 
You can then tell them the name of the plant or tree as well and as much more information as you think can absorb.

Magical Mama (or Papa)

Simply place a coin under one of three cups and shuffle the cups around. Then ask your children to guess which cup holds the coin. 
Sneaky parents can place the cups near the edge of a table and secretly drop the coin. 
Watch your tots’ eyes light up in amazement when they learn the coin is gone!

Travel Alphabet

Play this game when traveling by car, especially long trips, with children of all ages. 
Run through the alphabet from A to Z by asking them to spot the letters, in sequence, on the number plates of other cars traveling on the road.  

When they’re done with the alphabet, you can switch to numbers. 
Next, try spotting objects or cars or buildings in different colors.

Ten Questions About Indian States

Ever played 20 Questions with names of personalities dead or alive, where you can only answer with a yes or no? 
You can do the same with names of Indian states, but with only 10 questions.
Is this state in the north of India? Does its border touch Nepal? Is tea grown there? 
Remember, you can only ask 10 questions before you have to guess. Play this game while traveling by car with schoolgoing kids of all ages.


For 4 persons it is the best formula of entertainment. 
Unlike other board games, it requires physical and mental activeness.
