Mr. Hershey’s Cures for Cabin Fever

Can’t get your kids off the couch? Suffering from cabin fever? Here are some ideas to get your little couch potatoes up and moving while having fun - maybe you can join them and spend some quality time together!

* Build things with Legos, Tinker Toys, or create something using items around the house.

* Make a Laser maze using crepe paper.

* Use cardboard boxes, blankets and furniture to make forts or houses and decorate them.

* Use plastic/paper cups and balled up socks to create a bowling alley down the hallway.

* Use an old stuffed animal to play a game of soccer or baseball.

* Make paper airplanes and color them.

* Design and build a board game.

* Make a tic-tac-toe board on the floor and use bean bags, socks, or stuffed animals.

* Have an inside scavenger hunt.

* Make a library where kids can check out books or a store where they can work and shop.

* Create a variety/game show or a skit/play.

* Cook or bake something together, make a cooking video to show grandma and grandpa.

* Create an art gallery and hang the kid’s pictures.

* Build a Skee-Ball game.

* Create an indoor obstacle course.

* Create an obstacle course for your hamster – be sure it doesn’t get out!

* Create a new dance, sing karaoke.

* Make a cornhole game using cardboard and socks.

* Play musical chairs.

Hope this is fun and you get the kids away from those video games, get them moving, and spend time together while staying active!
