13. Sticker Line-Up
Just scribble anything in a long piece of paper and your kids can put stickers on it peace and quiet.
Who doesn’t love waashi tapes! They’re colourful tapes that can do a lot of stuff more than just being an adhesive. It’s decorative and for a no-mess fun activity, this flower craft is just adorable.
This fun no-glue activity can let your kids get creative with just a piece of paper, black pen and scissors.
16. Fort Building
Sure, building a fort can require minor mess (you will need blankets and pillows), but if you can convince the kids to make the fort in their bedroom, then you have a mess-free main area still. We build forts by draping a large blanket over the back of two chairs and adding pillows into the covered area. However, you can create forts or tents in any crevice of the house with a little imagination and a lot of blankets.
17. Board Games
I’ve always loved board games. It challenges the mind and spirit. This no mess activity will bring loads of fun not just for the kids but for the whole family as well.
Here’s a Lego Board Game printable!
Here are just a few suggestions we have. What other non messy kid’s activities can you add to the list? Feel free to submit your own ideas to the SAHM team at [email protected]. We’d love to hear from you!
