I never realized how much we went outside until we were told we needed to socially distance ourselves and stay home as much as possible. We work really hard to stay healthy, and even though I didn’t think we went many places, I have felt much stress over not being able to get out like before. As an extrovert, staying put is hard for me, and I can’t even imagine how Lawson feels not being able to get all his energy out while we are socially distancing and having at-home staycations. I have begun pulling indoor toys out from the garage that were Addie’s for therapy so Lawson could use them, and I realized so many of them are amazing energy burning indoor toys from Amazon! If you are looking for indoor toys for your kids to use while you socially distance, look no further. Not only have we used most of these, but I’ve researched, talked to occupational and physical therapists, and as a former teacher, I totally approve of every single one of these indoor toys!

Looking for energy burning indoor toys to break up your kid's boredom? Look no further than this huge list!

1| Mini Trampoline– This trampoline is a perfect energy burning indoor toy. The bar helps kids hold on for stability and it easily folds down to put under a bed or in a closet. Addie and Lawson have both enjoyed this one and it has lasted us several years and will for many more.

2| Ball Pit and Extra Balls– We got one of these ball pits as a gift for Lawson and he loves it. Don’t forget the extra balls because you’ll want it to be full.
