12 Active Indoor Activities for Kids

Do your kids have lots of energy like mine do? I feel like I am always asking someone to stop running or jumping off the stairs. I love finding ways for my kids to be active indoors without doing things that are destructive. 

Here are 12 active indoor activities to get kids moving and having fun in productive, creative, and educational ways!

The 12 indoor activities shared in this post were done with toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergarteners though they can be adapt for older kids. Many of these activities also incorporate simple preschool concepts such as number, color, alphabet, and shape recognition.
