Active Play at Home

Don't let the fun stop when you leave Sky Zone! We've got some cool ways you can continue playing at home.

Active Play at Home
Keep moving and having fun

We believe in the power of active play to keep our bodies and minds healthy. That's why we've put together some ways that you can continue to play and have fun while at home. Check out some easy-to-setup activities below and don't be afraid to get creative and put your own spin on things!

Freeze Dance

This fun spin on musical chairs will have your family grooving and giggling in no time.

Step 1: Put on your favorite playlist or album and start dancing.

Step 2: Pause the music sporadically and tell everyone to stop moving in their tracks until the music comes back on.

Step 3: Have fun with it - silly poses and faces encouraged!

Balloon Handball

An easy quick game of indoor handball with barely any set-up needed, and lots of hand-eye coordination practice! 

Step 1: In an open area, prop up two chairs about 10 feet apart, and tie a string between them.

Step 2: Inflate a balloon (or multiple for multiple kids). 

Step 3: Depending on kids’ ages, or how competitive you want to get, make a rule about how many times a player is allowed to hit the balloon while it’s on their side. 

Skip scoring to keep it lighthearted or set a point maximum of 3-5. Make it easy for kids to keep track of my giving points to players/teams each time they let the balloon drop. Team that gets to the point max first loses. 

Lego Color Hunt

You have to try this one, it is a kid-favorite and super easy to execute.

Step 1: Select 4 pieces of colored construction paper and then collect 10 Lego pieces that match each one (ie. 10 yellow Lego pieces for a yellow piece of paper).

Step 2: Hide all of the Lego pieces in one room/area of your house and lay out the colored paper on a table or the floor nearby.

Step 3: Start the clock and have your kid(s) start hunting. 

Step 4: Once they’ve found a Lego, they need to return it to the piece of paper that matches in color. See how long it takes them to find them all (tell them there’s 10 of each color so they can count to see if they’re missing any themselves), and then re-hide so they can try and get a lower time. 

Once they’ve had enough of the game, challenge them to have a little quiet time and make a cool rainbow structure out of the Legos (while Mom drinks a cup of coffee…score!) 

Obstacle Course

This tried-and-true idea is always a huge hit with kids, and can be made different every time so it never gets old. Make sure to create an engaging course that includes a variety of motions (jumping, crawling, balancing, etc.) and uses a large area. Have your kids help make the course (which is half the fun!) using some of these creative ideas: 

  • Hula hoops to jump through 
  • Line of tape to balance on 
  • Couch cushions to hop between 
  • Table to crawl under 
  • Blanket over 2 chairs to crab walk through 
  • Tupperware containers to hurdle over 
  • Stuffed animals to roll over 
  • Plastic cups to run around 

We love that obstacle courses are great for kids of all ages to participate in – the younger tots enjoy just being able to complete all the obstacles, while older kids can race against each other or the clock. You could even have them attempt it balancing a bean bag or stuffed animal on their head, or with 1 hand behind their back. 

Take 10 minutes to set-up a super engaging course, and you’ll benefit from happy, worn-out kids. 

Alligator Alley

This is a simple one that requires minimal setup, and is just as fun for parents as it is for kids.

Step 1: Scatter some “islands” or “boats” across the floor (using pillows, blankets, stuffed animals, etc.).

Step 2: Have kids jump from one to another without falling into the “water” and risk being eaten by a hungry alligator.

Bonus points if mom or dad plays the hungry alligator and chomps after kids when they stumble! 

Long Jump

We’re bringing back an oldie but a goody to get the family jumping! See how far everyone can jump by marking the distanced jump with tape.

Step 1: Make 5 – 10 separate lines of tape on the floor. Label the first tape line as the “START.”

Step 2: Try having everyone jump over each of the tape lines and experiment different ways to jump:
  • Try arms swinging, arms behind the back
  • How far can you jump backwards?
  • How far can you jump on 1 leg? 

Step 3: Repeat by trying to beat the best record each time!
