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!
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.
3| Crawl Tunnel– These little crawl tunnels are so fun for kids! Such a fun indoor toy to play with and easy to store away! Play hide n go seek, army, or grab a blanket and lay inside. Endless possibilities.
11| Stepping Stones– This is great for kids of all ages. Little ones can touch the textures, toddlers and littles can hop from stone to stone, and big kids can play “The Floor is Lava” on these! Stepping Stones are a great indoor toy because they stack to put away!
14| Wooden Balance Board– Similar to the plastic one above but definitely allows for more creativity thanks to the simple, wooden design. The wooden balance board can be flipped to make a bridge or tunnel for toys!
17| Swedish Wall Playground– If you have the space for this one, definitely grab it. This is a homeschool parent’s dream, but also every kid’s dream! The Swedish Wall Playground is the perfect indoor toy and is super versatile. Great for burning energy and learning lots of skills.
20| Rocking Chair Seesaw– Need your child to stay in one place but burn off their energy? This chair seesaw is perfect for that! It’s bright colors and thin design make this cute and functional and fun!
