Top 5 Games for Kids to Play Indoors
Playing in the park, spending time on the swings, or just frolicking in the grass with friends—childhood is filled with joyful moments.
But, sometimes, kids miss out on playing outside due to various reasons, ranging from bad weather to seasonal allergies.
So what do you do when the kids cannot leave home?
Rather than letting them be glued to computers or TV screens, you can use interactive and fun games to play indoors. The best part is that such games can be enjoyed by everyone, helping you turn a simple evening into a family game night!
Five indoor games that your children will enjoy and learn from include:
1. Mudpuppy Tangram Race (Recommended ages: 6-99 years)
An exciting game for kids to play indoors, Tangram Race by Mudpuppy won the Tillywig Brain Child Award. Inspired by a classic Chinese game, it is based on geometric designs.

Printed using non–toxic, soy-based inks and made with recycled paper, this game encourages the competitive spirit in your little ones.
2. Melissa & Doug Suspend Family Game (Recommended ages: 8+ years)
24 game rods, four frame rods, a wooden base, and one wooden connector—this kids’ game may seem like a piece of cake, but it is challenging as well.

Prime Climb by Math for Love is an innovative way to teach the basic principles of mathematics, focusing on prime numbers, multiplication, and division. Kids need to roll the dice and complete a series of calculations to reach the center of the board before the other players do!
5. PolarB Block Tower (Recommended ages: 3+ years)
A simple stacking game, PolarB Block Tower comprises 54 small blocks, two dice, and a polar bear block that goes on the top of the tower. This game gets children to put on their thinking caps.

This can be repeated until the tower tumbles down!
