15 Fun Indoor Sports Games for Kids

It is essential for children to have regular physical activity for their well-being. As a parent, we are always looking for ways to keep our kids active and away from the screen. With pandemic and now winters, outdoor play for kids is even more restricted.

We have been trying out creative ways to keep our daughter motivated and engaged in physical activity at home. We turned our dinning table into a ping pong table, got a basketball hoop mounted on the door and have a washi tape hopscotch in the hallway to name a few.

While looking for more ideas, we came across these indoor sports to encourage kids to stay active while having fun at home. Thought of sharing with everyone to help you find play ideas for your child. What I love about these games is that they’re a great way for kids to try hands on a new sport as well.

These games will also come in handy to keep the kids entertained on a rainy day. And, If you’re still looking for Christmas gifts for kids, these are some really awesome gift ideas to help kids up and moving this holiday season.
