Fall is quickly approaching and while it is still pretty warm here in Texas, I know the weather is starting to cool off in other parts of the world. As a mom, this means my kids will be spending less time playing outside and more time playing inside. This isn’t typically good news for them, because they LOVE being outside. However, I have been brainstorming 3 ways to make inside play more fun! Yes, thats right, get prepared with fun inside games now. Here are three things I am doing:
Create A Fun Space
A fun space can just brighten up your day. The JumpOff Jo brand all started with an idea to create products to brighten your day, from baby’s to products for the whole family. Their large waterproof foam play mat is a great way to create a fun space. It is adorable, double-sided and created a large space to play. My favorite part – it makes clean up a breeze! Those activities I typically take outside, we can do inside with ease. Painting.. no problem! Just bust out the Waterproof Play Mat and you are good to go. My kids both love that its dual sided. They like to flip it back and forth based on their mood! You can grab yours easily on Amazon.
Food is always a good idea. A great way to liven up any party is with good snacks. I like to have games that involve food as well. There are also tons of learning activities you can do with food. Just bust out your JumpOff Jo Play Mat as your base and you are good to go!
I know this part can be the hardest, but I start with something my kids know and love. For example, my kids love playing in their play kitchen. So, I take this activity and put a twist to it. We can have a “picnic” on our JumpOff Jo Play Mat inside, or I can use real food in their kitchen. I can even involve costumes or funny voices. There are so many possibilities when you start brainstorming. Does your daughter love tea parties? Try a “real” one with water and crackers. It just makes it so much fun!
So, don’t be bummed about inside play this winter! Take the opportunity to mix it up and try something new. I know my kids LOVE even the smallest details added to normal games. Plus, I love a good base with the JumpOff Jo Play Mat! Grab yours on Amazon and get to playing!
