Switch the lights off, shut the curtains, and make shadows on a wall by use of a torch. Use your imagination to create fascinating animals to characters.

Eat together as a family, around your dining table. Come and discuss a random ‘night topic’ during dinner time. They may be ‘unicorns’ or ‘super-heroes of yesteryear’ – anything. Come into the world of your kids. This can be part of your everyday dinner routine.
5. Play Jigsaw
Do a puzzle together! And communicate, converse, and interact with each other, just as you do. Whether you can create the puzzle in one go or slowly every day. You can frame it until finished, and place it on the wall! A warm recollection of a good time that will last a lifetime with you.
Keep your ears open but shut your eyes. Hear the different sounds around you very carefully. Say it out when you hear something. Was the truck going through? Is a small frog crooked? Or grandma in the other room reciting prayers? You’ll find your kid is as smart as she can be.
7. Dumb charades
A classic family game, the hands, gestures, and facial gestures are easy (and not speaking) to make the other guess the name he makes for the film/cartoon/character. It’s a perfect game for young people to challenge and to create hours of indoor fun!
8. Vegetable art
Children will never get bored with vegetable printing. Let the children get busy making a veggie masterpiece (and a little chaotic). Cut okra in half, for example, dip the open-cut end into the paint and print it on paper. Create designs and patterns. Do this together.
9. Tongue twisters and riddles
Speaking of tongue twisters, that is another great way of engaging your kid. Take turns and offer some tongue twisters for each other to try. These are guaranteed to make you laugh all over. You may also ask each other a few clever riddles to see who gets the right answers. A good, laid back way to have some fun with your kids!
10. Pretend play
What does your baby want to be? Any Zookeeper? Which Princess? Vampire, Wolfgang? Chef? Let her be whatever she wants, and then engage in some imaginative play and bring to life her story. Act together in scenes. There are several playsets you can purchase-doctor set, vanity set, set of equipment, set of cooking, etc. Or using the things around the house simply as props.
If you don’t have home design jewelry sets, no worries! You and your kids can make some fun jewelry using everyday things like pasta, noodles, straw pieces, beads, paint, yarn, fabric, bottle tops, shells, and other stuff. Consider wearing it for the next party which you are attending.
12. Sock puppets
Find some old pairs of bright socks your child has outgrown. You may use eye buttons, bits of cloth for the eyes, and things like thread, yarn, rope, or even cotton wool for hair. Your ‘Puppet Sock’ is ready for use. Now, take turns and bring your hands in and lend your voice to the characters!
Singing your heart out. For extra imagination, allow children to make up to popular songs their own customized words. It can be cute, sappy, or goofy! And if anyone knows how to play a musical instrument, even better still!

In every household Carrom once in a while was a staple game. Revive the magic of this children’s game. It promises hours of awesome family fun and both exciting and challenging!

Remember the renowned Ulta pulta word Hindi. Time for the game. Do stuff backward. Let your baby put his or her clothes back, go back and let the time for dinner be backward. Well, continue the dessert and end the main track! With this laugh riot that will follow, your world will definitely turn upside down.
Scatter a few rubber mats or sheets of paper onto the ground (the rocks are depicted on a river) and jump from one piece of paper to the next. Seek not to fall in the water and the chance of a hungry crocodile being eaten. Whenever you miss a paper sheet landing and slip into the water, scream, and squirt as if Mr. Croc got you!
