5 Recommended Indoor Activities for Kids During School Break

School is finally out! 

Staying at home doesn't mean being boring because there is just so many activities that kids can do to make this school break fun and productive.

We know that traveling and outdoor activites would be ideal but this may not be feasible for some families. Thus, we came up with a list of indoor activities that is equally fun, exciting and easy to organize. 

1. Art and Craft Projects

Art stimulates creativity and imagination. It is also known to help promote self-esteem and self expression regardless of chosen medium. 

Whether your kids opts to paint, draw or simply just color, take the opportunity to uncover their talents and develop value skills. 
They can even recycle common household items for their craft projects such making paper flowers, toilet paper frogs and a lot more. 

2. Indoor Scavenger Hunt

If you are looking for a more physical activity, then an indoor scavenger hunt is a great idea. These activities boost your child's observation skills and encourages independent exploration, critical thinking and problem-solving. 

You can do this individually or by pairs (if you have a bigger household) in that way, you can also develop the value of teamwork and strategy. 

There are a lot of printables of indoor scavenger hunt lists available on Pinterest so, you can readily start anytime. 

3. Read Books

Reading should not be presented as a chore but rather it is a fun activity.

By raising kids who love to read, we teach them a fundamental skill that is essential to life as they grow older. It offers access to worlds of imagination and knowledge. Just like Dr. Seuss said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

Some of favorite books include: 
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (Age 2+) 
  • The Velvetin Rabbit by Margery Williams Bianco (Age 3+)
  • The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss (Age 4+)
  • Heidi by Johanna Spyri (Age 6+) 
  • The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein (Age 6+) 
  • Charlotte's Web by E.B White (Age 7+) 
  • Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery (Age 9+)
  • A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle (Age 9+)

4. Educational Computer Simulated Games 

Is your kid into computers? Then, this school break may be the best time to immerse them more in technology. Ofcourse, we are NOT talking about kids playing games such as mobile legends all day long. 

Instead, we are talking about software development games that can teach children about coding logic along with how software is made and tested. Websites such as offer these for free. 

One of our favorite games is Code Panda. This game is an introduction to programming where players will need to provide the movement codes to help a panda reach its bamboo. 

The game is very simple but it requires you to think. You can play all 32 stages. 

They also have a game called We Bare Bears Develobears which teaches players about the components needed in making a video game.

Tasks include painting pictures, making a chiptune, creating custom pixel art which appears in the game, and adding other unlockable in game elements. You will need to play through various combinations of level design, music composition, and characters. 

5. Cooking and Baking Lessons 

Maybe it's time to teach your kids to cook or bake. As early as 5 years old, parents can teach their children how to measure, pour, grate, peel and set the table with constant supervision. By age 8-11, kids can now follow, straightforward recipes, plans and menus. 

Whether they bake or try to cook a meal, making them feel comfortable in the kitchen is the first step in bringing their interest in this important life skill. Introduce working on a stove and oven. 

Aside from the cooking or baking skills, this opportunity allow allows you to teach your children the value of patience where they see that preparing food can't be rushed.  


Let us all make the most out of these school breaks for our kids. This will leave lasting memories and lessons that they will surely value later on in life.
