30 Indoor School Holiday Activities Your Kids Will Love

If your kids are not outdoorsy types, or if the weather is just too cold or rainy, they can still enjoy their school holidays inside!

Here are 30 indoor school holiday activities that your kids will definitely love.

1. Make Some Friendship Bracelets

Friendship Bracelets have been around for decades, and are coming back into popularity with a vengeance. Pop down to your local craft shop to pick up bright colourful embroidery thread to make them at home.

It’s great for kids find motor skills, and takes them ages so it’s going to keep them occupied for days!

Follow this easy tutorial on how to make them from Honestly WTF

2. Have a Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunts are fun for kids of all ages – and we have different Scavenger Hunts for different ages.

The Lego Colour Hunt:

Allocate each child one Lego colour.  Grab 10 pieces of Lego in that colour, and hide it in one room.  Each child has to go and find all 10 pieces of ‘their colour’ – the person that collects all of their 10 pieces first – is the winner!

The Wooden Puzzle Hunt:

This works much like the Lego Colour Hunt – but instead with all the pieces of a kids wooden puzzle.  As your child finds the puzzle pieces, they need to fit them back into the jigsaw puzzle.

3. Build a ‘Structure’ with 100 Cups

You can buy these cups from most supermarkets or party suppliers now – grab 100 of them and give the pile to each child to see what they can make!  Best of all, you can use them again and again.
