7 Ideas to Keep Your Kids Active Indoors

Ice-covered sidewalks, pouring rain, frigid or dangerously high temperatures make playing outside a no-go for the children? While it might be tempting to plop your antsy kids on the couch in front of the TV or to hand them iPads to entertain them, a series of indoor activities will help them burn energy, get some exercise and give you a chance to join in on some of the fun.

Curb cabin fever by planning an entire day of fun around these indoor activities or, even better, try to get your kids to help with household chores in the morning, then reward them with a few of these games in the afternoon. Relieve your friends and neighbors who are parents by inviting their kids over to participate—the more, the merrier with these activities.
