Keep the kids entertained during a rainy day

Beat boredom and keep the little ones entertained by turning your living room into a playground. You bring the snacks, and we’ll help you get the games to make an uneventful day fun for the whole family. The bonus? Quality time with your kids.

Staying home-staying safe-having fun.
Staying home-staying safe-having fun.

Round one - Origami!

Start your contest with a pastime that makes use of your creativity and brains - the origami folding game! We’ve created frogs out of the papers and made racetracks using coloured tape to see who completes them in time and races the frogs to the end. But let your imagination soar and do it the way you want to. Don’t forget - the winner gets snacks and drinks.

Round two - Fun with numbers

Who knew math could be fun? Hang our drawing paper roll on a rail and draw a few colourful math problems the kids, and maybe even the adults, would love to solve. It’s easy to attach, remove and tear-off to start a fresh game. 

Round three - Indulge your spy fantasies

Turn your living room into a secret lair and let your kids save the day by narrowly avoiding the laser beams. And by laser beams, we mean tape. Place a small rug and some cushions on the floor, so that your kids can jump and fall to their heart’s content. 

Last round - Target practice with the soft toy

Psst! Want to get your children to clean up their toys? Here’s a sneaky (and fun) way to do it. Place a basket and get them to throw their soft toys into it. The one with the most scores wins a piece of chocolate, and mom and dad win because they do not have to clean up. Everyone’s happy! 

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
