Keeping kids entertained with wholesome activities can sometimes be quite a challenge. What are the best ways to have fun with kids nowadays? Kids these days would rather sit at home in front of their computers or be glued to their iPads than to partake in any real physical activities. While there are some pretty high educational tech values that they could gain from the use of today\u2019s tech-savvy gadgets, but not everything is beneficial for them. Kids also need to be physically active to stay healthy inside out.\r\n\r\nParents today may complain that there is nothing much they can do to match up to the exciting apps and games that kids can get these days. It is not necessarily true for one with a little imagination and determination. As the cliche saying goes - If there\u2019s a will, there\u2019s a way.\r\n\r\nOur advice is to start spending more time with your kids so that they may value your companionship and learn to appreciate an all-round family bonding. Here are some fun activities you can try with your kids whenever there is time to kill. Time spent with your children is crucial for their emotional and mental well-being, where parents should ideally make that time!\r\n\r\n\r\n10 Ways To Have Fun With Your Kids\r\nIndoor\r\n1.\u00a0Living room Tele-match\r\nSet up an exciting and challenging indoor tele-match course. Have your family members split up into teams and hop along the hall, crawl under the table, do a forward roll on the cushions and transfer ping-pong ball with a spoon from one end of a room to another. Use everyone imagination to come up with any challenge. Here are some fun ideas for you and your kids to try:\r\n\r\n \tCrawl under or over a row of chairs.\r\n \tCrawl under a string or bar set between two chair legs.\r\n \tJump into and out of a Hula-Hoop five times.\r\n \tWalk on a balance board.\r\n \tThrow a beanbag into a laundry basket.\r\n \tRun while balancing a beanbag on your head.\r\n \tDo a ring toss.\r\n \tRide a tricycle along a predetermined route.\r\n \tDo a handstand.\r\n \tSkip in place while reciting a jump rope rhyme.\r\n \tDo ten jumping jacks.\r\n\r\n2. Hide the Object\r\nUsing any ordinary object such as stuffed animal, pencil, drinking cup, etc. Play this fun, hide and seek game with your kids. Simply have your child hide their eyes, then place the object somewhere in plain view. Probably on the fireplace mantel, on top of the TV or near the front door. Let them have a look for it. Another idea is to use objects relating to a particular theme. For example, if your kids are focusing on the letter \u201cA\u201d that week, use objects that begin with \u201cA\u201d. You can mix the game up for older kids by hiding the object a little deeper. You might place the pencil or toy halfway behind a framed picture or maybe tucked behind a cushion.\r\n3. Get on board with board games!\r\nFamily board games like Scrabbles, Ludo, Monopoly or Cluedo can let hours of mind-stimulating fun! Not only are these board games a delight, but some like Cluedo and Scrabbles can also be mentally and intellectually challenging too! Make family board games night a regular thing- it can be a new family tradition. Pair with home-made snacks such as finger sandwiches or chilli fries, your kids will definitely have no problems sitting down to some valuable family bonding time.\r\n4. Never Ending Adjectives \r\nAsk your child to point out an object, then take turns coming up with adjectives for that object. For example, you may say \u201ca doll\u201d, your kids would say \u201ca Barbie doll\u201d. The game might continue with \u201ca beautiful Barbie doll\u201d, \u201cA blonde beautiful Barbie doll\u201d, \u201cA tall, blonde, beautiful Barbie doll\u201d and where ever else the sentence might take you!\r\n\r\n\r\n5. Make and bake\r\nLet your kiddies involved in the kitchen for your rendition of baking day. Kids would love to help mix batter, knead dough or sprinkle in raisins or chocolate chips! Have fun baking in the kitchen. It isn't just a good bonding session but also good for their development. Let the aroma of freshly baked cookies, cake, pie or even bread flow through the air!\u00a0 Last but not least, there\u2019s always the universal question when it comes to baking- anyone wants to lick the batter off the spoon?\r\nOutdoor\r\n6. Street sports\r\nOrganising a game of street hockey or soccer with other families by bringing some excitement to your neighbourhood streets. Arrange potluck refreshments to brought by participating families. It\u2019s a great way to get to know your neighbours. Just be sure the venue chosen for your activity is safe, away from traffic and open space. To fit everyone and suitable for all the planned games.\r\n\r\n\r\n7. Planting the love of nature\r\nVisit a botanical garden or a butterfly park. Plants and trees are just as important to us for they use the carbon dioxide we expel from our bodies and in return, give us oxygen to breathe. Family outings to botanical gardens and butterfly parks can be an excellent opportunity for you to help your child understand the delicate mechanics of nature and how important it is to look after our ecosystem.\r\n8. Outdoor art\r\nTake art supplies outside with you like crayons, markers, pens and don't forget the paper. Think of anything based on your surrounding to draw. For a touch of creativity, get your kids to draw it from a different surface you can find outside. Your kids will notice that each surface creates a different pattern.\r\n9. Guess and tell\r\nTake turns blindfolded. Whoever isn\u2019t blindfolded have to bring different things to be used as a subject for the blindfolded one to see if they can guess what it is. The sense of smell, sense of touch or sense of hearing has to be utilised to identify the object.\r\n\r\n\r\n10.
