Keeping Boys Busy and Happy Indoors in Bad Weather

Posted February 28th, 2013 by Halloweenish

Late winter and early spring are tough times for active boys who want to be outdoors. It can be a hard time for parents, too, when restless kids can’t understand that playing outdoors in cold, wet, blustery weather can lead to flu or other illnesses.

One great way to keep kids busy and happy indoors is by encouraging them to play games on line. There are some wonderful games for boys, especially, on the Internet. Here are a few examples:

  • Adventure games
  • Soccer games
  • Baseball games
  • Football games
  • Physics games
  • Classic arcade games
  • Samurai games (like little samuri)
  • Ninja games
  • Cartoon character games
  • Motocross games
  • Puzzles
  • Building games
  • Racing games
  • Flying games
  • War games
  • Shooting games
  • Motorcycle games

There are boys’ games for all levels, from three or four years old to adults. Your kid can be the hero of a different adventure every day. And when all those games have been won, here are some more boys games .

Games are a great way to entertain young visitors on weekends, during holidays and on spring break. And online games are real blessing when you need to entertain a sick child who must stay in bed or stay isolated from other siblings to prevent contagion. Computer games can occupy otherwise restless boys for hours.

Games are good for the mind. Research has shown that games help develop mental skills such as memory, problem-solving, and quick thinking. That makes games valuable for keeping the mind agile when kids are off from school or recovering from illness. Online games keep active boys busy and out of trouble, of course, but games can also exercise their brains.

So while icy rain makes the outdoors an unhealthy place to play, boys can be honing their minds and getting mentally prepared for outdoor sports and challenges later in the season. And they’ll be indoors, safe and warm, where you can keep an eye on them.
