Where we live, there are a lot of rainy days. I have to get creative to keep a two- and five-year-old entertained and active during those long, dark days. Here's an activity that keeps my kids happy and moving! We used tape to create a hopscotch course in our house. The kids had fun creating the course and playing around for hours!

How We Did It

Indoor Hopscotch

When we left sunny California for rainy Oregon, our biggest challenge was the rain. I dig deep to pull out all sorts of imaginative fun out of my mom hat. This activity is definitely a fan favorite!

My kids love setting up the course as much as they love playing... At first, we used masking tape to set up our course. But my hubby gave a great tip: painter's tape leaves no residue behind once playtime's over.

My five-year-old took the lead on creating the course, and my two-year-old followed his lead.

We collected some bean bags for markers and got to a serious game of hopscotch. They played, laughed, jumped, hopped and wore themselves out just in time for a nap.

I will let you in on another painter's tape secret we did a few months back....a cute little race car track. This was pretty fun for my daughter and I to set up together. We named each house and let little brother have some fun that day.

Hope you enjoy these rainy day game ideas!

Easy indoor activity. It kept my 3yo entertained for a bit from tossing the bean bag & hopping to pulling up the tape & repositioning it. I'm sure we'll repeat it many times this winter.
