Dona€™t let the bad weather ruin play time. Even if the skies are not sunny, there are still plenty of ways to keep children busy while indoors. By engaging them in arts and crafts activities or giving them indoor toys and winter toys, kids can still spend hours of fun and excitement!
Ita€™s time to get imaginative. Allow kids to trace, paint, draw, decorate, embellish and create anything they can think of. Fashion Angels, ALEX toys and Stationery Central are some examples of arts and crafts toys that provide hours of creative fun for kids. Toddlers can start early and practice their artistic skills by colouring, tracing or creating simple scrapbooks. Meanwhile, older kids can be a bit more experimental with tie dye and paint-your-shirt projects.
Build and Construct
Ita€™s not surprising if kids easily tire of the usual toys, but there a number of timeless choices like building and construction toys. Toys like these can literally grow up with your kids. As children grow up, their imaginations expand and they find new ways to use the toys depending on their age group. Younger children typically build simpler projects like towers made of blocks, while older children can go for more complex creations. These toys aid in developing colour recognition, hand-eye coordination and help enhance logical thinking. As they grow older, parents can introduce them to advanced building and construction toys like LEGO and Venture View, which also provide kids with a lot of learning opportunities.
Bring on the Challenge
Encourage your kids to challenge themselves and spend some time with educational games. There are many fun board games for kids like Monopoly, Memory Game, Jenga, Puzzle, Up Words and Twister. Most board games for kids are both physical and mental games. Not only are they exciting to play with, but they also aid with the childrena€™s mental and physical development. Even younger kids can learn while having fun. Toys for kids aged 1-3 like ALEX bath time activity toys and Fisher Price play sets can transform simple play time into a learning activity.
Online games are famous for their perfect use of technology, graphics and interaction. A popular online game in Australia is Sqwishland.
