There are a few things you have to keep in mind when you want to keep the children occupied:

  • Then you must think of the necessary equipment for your games. It should be ready so the activity can start right away. Make being active easy by providing the right example and equipment.

MUSICAL CHAIRS

This fun indoor party game is an all-time classic for preschoolers. Line up a couple of chairs, but so that there is at least one chair short of the count of children. Play some nice party music and have the children walk in circles around the chairs. When the music stops, the children have to move to the chairs and sit on them. The last child who can’t find a seat is out of the game. Then you remove one chair and the game continues. The child who seats the last chair is the winner. Every child loves this game. It’s active, entertaining and fun. Indoor Party Games


CUP CATCH

This is a fun and easy game to play and it improves the childrens' catching skills. Give each child a plastic or paper cup to use as a mitt. Then you make a small ball of crushed aluminum foil. Then you line the children up in a circle and they have to pass around the ball using the cups to both toss and catch the ball. No hands allowed! If you have a large group, you can use two balls at the same time.

DRESS-UP RACE

Find some over sized adults clothes, each two of them, like a T-shirt, a hat, gloves, boxer shorts and rain boots or similar. Put the items on two chairs and have the children line up in pairs. They start at the starting line and when they hear the signal they run to the chairs to put on the items as quick as possible. An hilarious and active indoor party game.

BALLOON RACE

Make teams to the children and have them line up at the starting line. The first player of each team gets an inflated balloon between his knees and he or she has to run as fast as he or she can to the turning point and back. Then they pass the balloon to the next person in the team and that person does the race. The quickest team is the winner of this relay.

BEAN BAG TOSS

Take a large cardboard box and make different holes in the board. Some bigger ones on the bottom half and smaller ones at the top half of the cardboard. Put the board against a wall at an angle and write points next to the holes. The smaller the hole, the higher the points. Have the children throw the bags against the board and score the points.
