10 Indoor Activities For The Summer Holidays

On those scorching days, sometimes the best option is to stay home and enjoy the air-conditioner. Even though you are limited to your four walls, there is still so much you can do!

Grab you squishiest, softest pillows and build a fort. You can decorate it with your favourite toys, fairy lights, and blankets, anyway you please.

  • Arts and crafts

Paint, glue, and glitter, there are many things you can create. From a cardboard bus to a paper roll doll, the options are limitless. Get inspiration from the fun kids show, Mister Maker, who makes all sorts of wacky things.

  • Baking or cooking

Nothing is better than licking the spoon after mixing the icing. The warm cakes, muffins, or cupcakes are a delight when they have cooled slightly. Cooking or baking is a perfect way to spend the time as you get a treat from it.

Here is a list of sweets you can bake.

  • Learn a new hobby

Knitting, amigurumi, dancing, singing, gaming, sports, there is so much to learn. With the extra time, why not start during the holidays?

  • Visit the museum or art gallery

The Adelaide Museum and Art Gallery of South Australia are free, but there is paid content. Observe the paintings, sculptures, and historic artefacts and have a fun day in the city.

  • Board or electronic games

Grab you controllers or roll the dice, let the competition begin! With a range of options from Uno to Mario there is a ton of fun to spend with others, or entertain yourself. Better Homes & Gardens has created a list of family and kids games.

  • Put on a performance

Perform a show for your family and friends. You can create your own original show or act something already created like Shakespeare.

  • Read a story or write your own

What adventure can you imagine? A knight in shining armour; a human on the moon; a world like no other? Let you imagination run wild. If you don’t want to write, you can read a story. Scholastic has a story-starters that prompts your imagination.

  • Try new foods

Have you tried the 11 variety of Australian apples? What about the different flavours of chips? There are similar foods, but they can be different in many ways. Widen your food knowledge and figure out your preferred flavours.

  • The big or little screen

Enjoy a film on the big screen or your TV. Stream from the comfort of your home or enjoy the atmosphere of the cinema with the nostalgic fragrance of the popcorn.
