Using insulation tape (the narrower, the better) you can mark a city map for your child’s toy cars.

You can mark the hopscotch on your floor with painter’s tape for example. Just get some space on the floor – the very preparation stage will be fun itself!

#3 Paper plane competition

On a large piece of paper cut out a few round holes of various diameter. The planes won’t get stuck to the target – they will simply fly through, which is the aim of the game. Of course apart from having good eyesight you need to be good at making paper planes!

#4 Paper table tennis

What you need here is a jar of water, oil and food coloring agents. The jar has to be half-full.
In a separate dish mix the coloring agents with oil.
Now gently pour the colored oil into the water and that’s it!

This one is a great combination of science and fun.
What you need is a balloon, a drink straw and a string. Pull the string through the straw and stick the straw to the balloon. Fix one piece of the string to anything on the wall or furniture, and the other end to the balloon that you don’t do up.

#10 A spider game

Make the spider’s web with painter’s tape. Make sure that the sticky side is on one side of the web only.
Children throw paper balls (made of old newspapers for example) through the web. The one whose balls go through, wins.

#11 Learning to write

Sometimes some sugar poured all over a tray is enough to create a whiteboard to let your children practice writing!
