Indoor activities to keep the kids busy?

Hey providers, any ideas for indoor activities to keep the kids busy? I still have 6 kids at my home daycare and Iā€™m trying to stay creative and positive. Let me know what you guys are doing to keep the kids busy! TIA šŸ’•

Make ice cream in a ziplock bag. It’s fun for all ages. Teachable moment: explain how the salt will lower the freezing point of the ice (science lesson for older children). The link for the steps can be found by google searching ice cream in a bag. The children love it and so do I šŸ˜Š have fun! 0 Likes

Younger children would love sensory bags as well. Google search or try Pinterest to select your favorite. 0 Likes

I made some indoor snow.
it's super fun and keeps them busy.. freeze a box of baking soda.. 1 box is good for 2 kids
when you take out of freezer add water to the consistency you want.. easy to store in ziploc bags in freezer for later use

Vision boards are great time and talent ways to take up at least two hours..... going through magazines
