If it’s raining or very cold outside or there aren’t enough kids around to play together, it can be a challenge to encourage your child to get up and active. Why not try these fun treasure hunts to help keep your kids moving even when they’re indoors?
Choose different coloured sticky paper for each child playing. Place the bits of paper in several locations around the house. Whichever child finds all their coloured paper first wins.
Each colour paper is worth a certain amount of points. Hide several bits of paper around the house and give the kids one minute to find as many as they can. The child with the highest score wins.
Each child chooses one colour as their own and places several pieces of paper of that colour on a wall. In one minute they must try and steal as many pieces as possible of the other player’s colour. Whoever has the most of the other player’s paper in the end wins.
