I’m always trying to think up fun activities for kids since I have five of them to keep occupied! Also, after volunteering and working in schools for years, I realized that having a ready list of fun ideas is essential when you’re working with large groups of kids.
So, whether you are looking for activities to occupy your own kids, or you have to entertain an entire classroom, you’ll find several activities for kids below that you can use!
