Printable activities for kids are on TOP of my activity list now. Since summer is going to take place in a second or two, I am starting to think harder about the activities for kids during upcoming 'all kids at home' season. For instance, last year we had an awesome summer camp at home. I think, we will repeat it this year, but the camp won’t take all the free time they have! I want to keep my kids busy (not too much of course!) and encourage them to learn some interesting things with just a little help.
The minute I realise that my kids are bored my brain starts thinking of activities. Thus, some part of me is always excited about kids having free time. They tend to unleash their creativity and come up with the greatest ideas ever!
However, sometimes they get stuck and this is where Mommy should come to the rescue! So I decided to prepare in advance and gather some cool free printable activities for kids. So any mother can use it for those “MOM, I AM BORED!!!!” or “I HAVE NOTHING TO PLAY WITH” moments!
These 35 fun printable ideas perfectly fit different ages and situations. Also, my priority was learning activities, which they could play outdoors and indoors as well.
I am sure it will take some time for them to get bored of it! Take a look into the printable activities for kids list below! Or... go directly to the category:
