Let’s face it: no matter how involved you want to be in your children’s lives, you will not always have the luxury of time to be able to play with them. But, this doesn’t hinder them from doing a physical fun game at the comforts of your home.
Here is a brief list of safe and fun activities your children can play with socks while staying inside, even when you’re too busy to join in the fun.
1. Soccer with socks
It can be played with one child or more and furniture can be arranged to create goalposts.
2. Basketball with socks
Shooting into laundry hampers, cardboard boxes, and household containers can be immense fun!
Different shooting ranges can be tried to add to its entertainment.
3. Bowling with socks
By using three pairs of socks balls as the ball and empty milk bottles as the pins, this game is challenging and fun!
Ensure that breakable objects are tucked as a safety precaution.
4. Dodgeball with socks
Use a bedroom, a living room, or any large space. Clear the precious items away from it.
Use rolled-up socks as dodgeballs. Make a bed or sofa the safe zone.
5. Batting with socks
Use a cardboard, newspaper, or plastic material to make a bat. Create goalposts from two household objects and watch your children entertain themselves!
6. Throw and catch
Not recommended for younger children. Make sure there are no breakable objects in the room during this game. Add the 5-meter rule for throwing and catching the ball.
