Fun Indoor Party Games for Kids

indoor party games

Desperate for active games to play when you're stuck inside? These fun indoor party games and indoor activities for children will provide hours of entertainment!

No doubt, given a choice, my family prefers to play outside where there’s lots of room to run around, no walls or ceilings to get in the way, no furniture to break, lots of sunshine, and plenty of fresh air.

However, going outside isn’t always an option. 

Mother Nature has a way of messing up kids’ plans sometimes. As a kid, there wasn’t much I hated more than a cold, rainy day!

That meant no recess at school, no after-school sports practices or games, and no playing in the yard with my friends when I got home.

Now as a parent, bad weather means stir-crazy youngsters bouncing off the walls dying to expend some of their pent-up energy.

The activities listed below are guaranteed to make being inside fun!

Here are a few ideas to spur your imagination so you can create more fun indoor games of your own!

Round up some sheets and blankets, pieces of furniture, big pillows, and suitcases, and you’ve got the beginnings of a great indoor obstacle course.

Grab a few small containers like trash cans, plastic cups, boots, or shoe boxes, along with a tennis ball and a wooden spoon, and you’ve got the makings of a miniature golf course.

Gather some balloons, beach balls, balled up socks, or wads of paper and you've got endless possibilities for indoor ball games that tear up your house.

Start looking around, and you'll be surprised what you've got laying around the house that can be turned into some incredibly fun indoor activities for children.
