With all the hectic things going on and kids running around it would be nice to have some indoor activities for kids at home, right? I know that’s what I’ve been needing right about now.

Don’t let a little rain, sickness, or anything else drive you crazy with the kids running around the house. Get prepared.

There’s nothing worse than having kids run around the house like crazy or whine because they’re “so bored mom“.

I get it, with two kids that more often than not are bored easily, it’s hard to keep them entertained.

That’s why having an arsenal of indoor activities for kids at the ready is a good idea.

Think of it as a Rolodex for kid activities (or actually make one to stash ideas in).
