32 Indoor Crafts & Activities For Kids
Need some fun things to do when your kids are bored? Here are some great kids crafts, recipes and simple indoor activities to try!
We’re used to doing a lot of activities indoors. When August rolls around in Texas, we don’t go outside much. It rarely cools off at night, which means it’s pretty much HOT all day. It’s no fun playing in 100 degree weather unless you’re swimming.
To make being stuck at home, a hot summer and rainy days a little more bearable, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite crafts and kids activities that are perfect for the indoors.

Whether you have a rainy day, stuck at home or it’s just way to hot to venture outdoors, these fun ideas will give kids hours of entertainment. I hope you enjoy them!
