    Default Kids Games / Activities for the Holidays



    Free kids games are something that we are all searching for over the holiday season. The television and computer games will only stimulate kids to a certain level without really engaging them. Games that enhance their creativity and imagination are what really inspire kids. There are a wide range of free, fun and simple kids games to play these holidays- here's our Top 5 ideas to get you started!







    Top 5 Free Kids Games / Activities for the Holidays



    1. Musical Games- Children love a chance to dance and jump around, especially if they are stuck indoors. Put on their favorite kiddy tunes and let them jump and stomp around. It will be even more fun if they have friends and instruments to accompany them. If you don't have any real instruments, a pot and wooden spoon, or a homemade shaker will do just fine!



    2. Dressing Up Games- For kids the dress-ups box is a fantastic resource for stories, make-believe or any kind of imaginative play. Pretending to be shop-keepers, truck drivers, mums and dads, doctors, will keep kids entertained for hours. The more props the better so always have a store of blankets for cubbies or tents and assorted boxes for cars, dolls beds or wherever their imagination takes them.



    3. Treasure Hunt- A treasure hunt can be set up indoors or out, for a group of kids or just one or two kids. It gets their minds working searching for clues and the excitement builds as they get closer to completeing the task. Just remember to set the clues at the appropriate level for the ages of the children who are playing the game. Clues that are too hard will put children off playing the game!



    4. Craft Activities- By using cheap or available materials around your home your child's creativity will create an amazing array of craft projects. Investing in a kids craft book will keep a ready supply of inspiration and give ideas for materials to be keeping. Keep a ready supply of recyclables like cereal boxes, toilet rolls, candy wrappers, magazines and yoghurt containers. If your kids are not interested in gluing and pasting they can try modeling with play dough, plasticine or even paper mache.



    5. Indoor Games- A great way to relieve the boredom on a rainy day whether you are at home or away on holidays. Indoor games can include simple card or board games, from matching pairs for younger children, up to Scrabble for the older kids. Group games like these help them with numerical skills, taking turns and gamesmanship. Best of all they are easy to set up and can last for hours and can involve all the family.



    So get the kids out from being sat in front of the TV or computer and involve them in some great free kids games these holidays!
