4 Fun Activities with Kids

Written by: Ardianto Putra

Staying at home during school break doesn't have to be boring. Instead of looking for activities outside, explore fun and creative things you can do at home that can promote family bonding. Here are four activities to make indoor days exciting and enjoyable, without the need to dress up:

1. Science Experiments

Turn your home into a mini-laboratory and let curiosity lead the way. Engage kids’ minds and teach them about the world with these fun and educational experiments:

  • Volcano Eruption: Create a bubbling volcano with baking soda and vinegar to  develop their observation skills and a questioning attitude
  • Slime Making: Mix white glue, half teaspoon of baking soda and food colouring to make colourful, stretchy slime and exploring their sensory system
  • Cleaning Tablets 101: Asked kids a favour to clean one particular area in house together using SimplyGood dissolving cleaning tablets and showcase the fun of effervescence while using it

2. DIY Baking & Decorating

Baking is a fun and delicious way to teach kids about measurements, instructions, and a bit of chemistry. Try these ideas:

  • Cupcake Decorating: Bake plain cupcakes and let everyone decorate them with icing, sprinkles, and other engaging toppings.
  • Squid Game Cookie Cutter: Use needles to shape dalgona cookies inspired by the popular Korean TV series.
  • Bread Baking: Teach older kids how to knead dough and watch the magic of yeast.

3. Room Makeover

Refresh your living space and involve the whole family in creative DIY projects. Here are some ideas:

  • Room Rearrangement: Let the kids help rearrange the furniture in their rooms or other areas of the house.
  • DIY Crafts: Create new decorations like painted picture frames, homemade wall art, or customised cushions.
  • Themed Decor: Choose a theme and transform a room or section of your home to match it, such as a beach or jungle theme.

4. Clean Out Party

Turn cleaning into a fun game to teach responsibility and the importance of a clean environment. Plus, it can be incredibly satisfying if using the cleaning products that can be dissolved and are safe to use around kids and pets like SimplyGood. Here’s how to make it enjoyable:

  • Treasure Hunt: Hide small toys or treats in messy areas and have the kids find them as they clean.
  • Cleaning Relay: Set a timer and have races to see who can clean their area the fastest.

These activities ensure that spending the day indoors during school break can be filled with creativity, learning, and family bonding. Embrace these opportunities to make wonderful memories together!
