Indoor Activities for Kids

Welcome back to the Port Landing at Fife Apartments Blog! November is finally here. That means it’s time for great food, decorations, reflection, and cold weather. This month, we’re focusing on each of these things. Each week, visit our blog for something different that ties into Thanksgiving.


Today we’re focusing on the cold weather and indoor activities. With the weather getting colder week after week here in Fife, WA, it’s a good idea to plan some indoor activities, especially if you have any little ones running around your apartment. We have a few activities that are sure to keep people of all ages entertained.


A great indoor activity that is quick and easy to set up inside is this Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe idea! This project catches the eye, is as easy to set up as it is to take down, and will help entertain kids and guests for quite a while. If you’d like, you can make other games like this. If you have enough pumpkins, why not follow the same setup but make it bigger? This way, you can turn any table into a pumpkin checkerboard. The options are endless. If you have kids, have fun involving them so that they can make an activity that they want to play.


Making a big picture is always fun. As long as you have enough floor space cleared, taking a giant sheet of construction paper and crayons is a fun way to keep a kid distracted. If you need to entertain guests that are a little older, they can play life-size Pictionary with the same items.


This next one can get a little messy, but it’s a great change of pace. We’re talking about painting the windows (with washable paint, of course!). If you’d like to make your own window paint, follow these simple instructions. You’ll need dish soap and Tempera Paint, but that’s about it! Some people even commented on alternative methods to achieve the same results.


Check out what Crystal Clark said: “We made some with shaving cream and a few drops of food coloring. Adora loves to color in with these in the shower :) We have the perfect glass shower doors for this fun project.” Of course, we recommend that shaving cream should stay in the bath or shower for an easier cleanup.


We hope you enjoyed reading about three simple indoor activities that are perfect for kids and guests of all ages. Being inside does not mean the fun has to stop. Sometimes you’re required to think a little more creatively, especially if you want to keep people engaged and off of their electronic devices.
