In our blog, “The Importance of Parent Playdates,” we talk about the social benefits of having parents attend playdates, but we didn’t offer any suggestions on how to keep the kids engaged and having fun. In this blog we are going to do just that — and just in time for the “winter blues.” All of these games can be set up with household items or ones you can find at the dollar store. So without further ado, here are three resources for awesome playdates on a budget.
- “30 Most Creative Playdate Ideas for Fall and Winter.” This blog article is perfectly titled. Here you’ll find instructions on how to make things like:
- An indoor drive-in movie theater
- Dinosaur tails
- A homemade ball pit
- A duct tape obstacle course
Don’t be surprised when your playdates turn into parent playdates because everyone will want to hang out at your fun house!
- DIY bowling
- Dress-up with costumes and photo ops
- Dance parties
- Kid-friendly crafts
- Paper airplane school
- Sumo wrestling
- A DIY laser maze
- Indoor camping
The best thing about these activities is that not only will they keep kids occupied, they’ll help kids burn off all the extra energy they tend to have. You’re welcome, moms and dads.
