50+ Screen-Free Indoor Learning Activities for 5 year old- FREE Printables

VACATIONS or stuck indoors (like current situations when school, parks & all public places are shut down because of spread of deadly corona virus) are equally exciting, relaxing as well as stressful & difficult times (especially for parents) when kids are house-arrest because of weather or illness or some other unforeseen reasons, when you are just paranoid to take kids out to park or play area or play dates.

And you can neither match the energy levels of 5 year old nor entertain them whole day 24*7 for a couple of days….. phew!! THAT IS EXHAUSTING!

And you are tired of hearing “I am bored” every 5 minutes!!

And you don’t want them to be glued to screens or video games whole day!!

So now how do you save yourself from losing sanity & maintain peace at home, so that no-one kills each other?

Try these simple Screen-Free no-preparation easy fun and creative activities for kids at home , which will entertain them, tire them and there will be some or the other learning or skill development at the end of it.

Favorite ones go for repeat!!

How to entertain a 5-year old?

Honestly these kids are rolling balls of energy and it’s near-to impossible for the parents to “play with them” for the whole long day. And mine uses cartoons as the escape plan – either you play or let me watch cartoons.. 

Here is a list of indoor activities for kids which do not require much preparation or too many essentials and will keep kids busy for considerable time, atleast enough to let you have a coffee in peace or think of next activity to engage them to.

50+ Ideas of No-Screen Indoor Learning Activities for kids to keep them busy while at home

It would be a good idea to start the day with yoga or some kind of exercise, as there is less of physical activity when they are not going out, but is absolutely important for overall development.

A stock of colorful play dough always helps and is a winner with every age,  paired with some stencils, knife, shape cutters and some free play models. Here are some ideas for inspiration. Encourage them to give shape to their imagination.

Finger Puppets

Make finger puppets with kids out of paper or cardboard boxes or felt or foam. And ask them to tell stories with the puppet characters. Do volunteer to become audience while sipping your hot coffee.

Cloud Dough

A simple dough to make at home my mixing flour and oil, you can give your child hours of entertainment. Variations like dino fossils, dino or animal jumping in it and then taking animals for bubble bath are surely to get kids excited and busy. Recipe of cloud dough here .

Kids love nature, plants, flowers and especially planting these themselves. So involve them in planting some seeds and encourage them to remember to water the plants daily. They will surely become responsible and caring. Possibly one the best indoor learning activities for kids .

Painting Pots

Gardening can be made more fun by asking kids to paint and decorate their planting pots with pom pom, stickers, glittery foam, glitter glue.

Memory Games

Holidays give enough time to work on memory and play some memory games. They can make flash cards on their own and then play with them or try this Memory Game by Skola Toys (Amazon purchase link below*) .

Some toys with enhanced creativity will settle the war of screen-time and no-screen, as  they will be  looking at screens  anddrawing andthen playing with theri creations. Check Skipy  Travel toys (Amazon purchase link above*).

Indoor picnic is a good idea. Ask kids to pack their favorite snacks, or better prepare their own vegetable sandwich and pack in picnic basket along with mat and drinks. Inviting friends home would even be a better idea.

Picture Collage

Make use of old magazines at home, cut picture from them and handover to the kids with a glue and paper. Kids love gluing, atleast mine does. Differnet textured papers like gift wrapping papers can also be used to create mosaic arts .

Reuse used activity, coloring and alphabet books for making collages.

Check below a video of my boy making a picture collage from old magazine cuttings. Absolute free thinking!!

Kids love to imitate others and they often amaze us by the minute details they notice. Utilize the spare time as wonderful opportunity to learn what all they see and notice in the surroundings – at school, park, hobby class, home, shops etc. Our favorite are kitchen plays, shopkeeper and delivery boy role plays 😉

Paper airplanes

Need to utilize the energy outbursts, so engage them in some running round the house with paper airplanes.

Sensory Play

Some sensory play with mud, sand, grains, rice etc. by creating a scenario in a box like construction, sea, farm or jungle. Sensory plays are good for overall sensory development.

Another way of involving physical work-out is balloons throwing, catching and kicking. One more interesting idea to charge up the balloons by rubbing against hair or some surface and then seeing them stick to face and walls and roofs.

Building Blocks

Different varieties of  blocks are useful in mental and cognitive development along with fine motor skills. Let the kids explore and create their imagination with the blocks – free play preferred.

Creating something is what every child loves. Just keep a stock of few craft essentials like pom poms, glitters, paper plate etc. and get crafting with kids. Ask them their favorite animal or object and then do crafts related to it.. season related crafts are always hit with kids.

Check here for 50+ easy craft ideas good for toddlers as well as for kids of age 5+ years. Try modifications and variations as per availability of crafting essentials and interests.

Best way to wear up the energy balls and that too the super fun way. Do join them in dancing and get join the fitness club. You and kids will get a sound sleep at night after dancing joyfully.

Tracing Patterns

Tracing the blocks or matching the size/ shape of drawn patterns is an activity boosting logical reasoning and cognitive skills.

Bookish Activities

Adding on the bookish activities and bedtime stories, to encourage them to pick up books in vacations would be a good idea like –

  • Puzzle books,
  • story telling with book props,
  • creating book-related crafts or
  • asking the children to draw characters or scenes from their favorite book, or
  • tell a new story with their favorite characters.
  • puppet show

Our recent favorite is Gruffalo Jigsaw Book. Shop below: *

Books on Environmental Awareness

No-school days are still need to continue the learning process. Books based on science concepts that explain basic fundamentals in the form of story are the easiest to understand and relate and follow for kids aged 5 and above, like this series of Zayn and Zoey .

Zayn and Zoey series is based on The adventures of twins and stories are narrated in fun learning way that young learners are sure to  be fascinated and will try to inculcate the science concepts in practical life. Reading and Vocabulary building are bonus, so win-win.

There are various concepts and story narrations to choose from in this series. We started reading with the Solar Power and Rain water Harvesting and finding these absolutely intriguing. (Amazon purchase links given below*)

Hurdle Race

Placing objects, pillows, cushions on the floor to jump and run is a  2-in-1 activity, playing and exercising. Better to place rug , carpet or mat below to avoid hurting upon falling.

Cardboard Box Parking or Doll House

Needless to say how much kids love parking spaces and doll houses. It’s super easy to reuse a cardboard box and turn it into a car-parking or a dolly house and ensure hours of play, without continuous nagging.

Treasure Hunt

By hiding favorite toys at simple places in the house and then giving interesting clues or tasks to find them would be an amazingly interesting activity. Make them work their brain cells up.

Frozen Dinosaurs/Toys

This activity has always been a hit with us. Simply freezing his favorite dinosaurs or construction vehicles and then excavating them during the bath time. I prefer the break the ice in the bath tub. Sometimes I do add food colors for added fun. 2 fun ways of doing this activity:

  • Salt & warm water can be used to melt the ice and dig out the frozen toys.
  • Break the ice with hammer or throwing small ice cubes in the bathtub.

I love jigsaw puzzles. Best to boost logical and analytical reasoning. Age-appropriate jigsaw puzzles, word puzzles, picture puzzles, map puzzles are recommended to encourage kids to solve. We love wooden and floor jigsaw puzzles currently.

All kids love camping with their frozen or stuff toys. And so camping in the house will be a wonderful idea to keep them engaged and happy with self-play. A colorful foldable light-weight play tent is all we need to encourage the creative play. These ones occupy less space, so can be easily placed in living or play room as well.

Handmade Greeting Cards or Gifts

Encourage kids to make greetings cards or gifts for upcoming festivals or occasions. One benefit of preparing these now would be it will save your last-moment efforts and hassle. Plus they will pour their heart out in making cards or gifts for their loved ones. Hence working up on emotional quotient and social behaviour.

Some 50+ inspirations for handmade gifts and cards for daddy .

Science Experiments

Who doesn’t love some fascinating magical science experiments! What can be better opportunity to turn science into fun.

Probably the best indoor learning activities for kids. Also utilize the opportunity to explain the reasons behind the magic so they understand the phenomena as well. Some easy one that can be done at home with whatever is available, with kids of age 5+ are 

  • Density experiment – with different density/weight toys
  • Lava Lamp (oil-water density difference)
  • Fireworks in a jar 
  • Balloon rocket (static electricity)
  • Walking Rainbow
  • Skillets Rainbow
  • Magic Milk Coloring Experiment   (Emulsion – Suspension) – video below

Board Games

Good opportunity to have some quality family time. Choose any of your favorite board games and play together with kids, without gadgets. They will love these memories forever.

Hide & Seek

No child ever says “NO” to hide & seek! This game has been the most all-time favorite of all age groups, anywhere, any place. One of the most engaging and interesting indoor activities for kids. Adult supervision is recommended. 

Printable Activities

Some printable activity sheets are useful in practicing for the alphabets, numbers etc. I have provided few FREE printable sheets below which include memory games, odd ones out etc.

House chores

There is no age to learn household chores, and one MUST know basic life-survival skills like making a snack, making their bed, cooking, cleaning, tidying up, drying clothes, emptying dishwasher, folding laundry, setting up the dining table etc. Some ideas for Montessori-activities at home here .

Tidying-up before bed

It’s always a good habit to encourage them to tidy-up before going to be, so that you wake up to clean and sparky house. Tidying up their own mess also makes them responsible and next time they will be careful in scattering the stuff as they know they will be the one cleaning it up later. This Also wears them out, so ensures good night sleep.

This is a difficult time for everyone. It’s tough & demanding and troublesome to entertain kids 24*7 confined at home, but hoping and praying for it all to be fine soon.

Keep kids safe and protected. Engage them indoors with some indoor fun activities.. Stay strong mommas.

Stay Blessed & Safe!

  • Have lots of fun dressing up with clothes and props at home so that your child can dress up as a character and act out favourite stories. You can find lots of cheap props and clothes for dressing up in charity shops.
  • Play games such as ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?’, but write the times down for them to read instead of saying them.

6. Tactile games

  • Use magnetic letters to spell names and simple words on the fridge or radiator.
  • Use modelling clay to make your child’s name or simple words like mum.
  • Enjoy jigsaws together and chat about finding the right pieces!

7. Screen games

  • Watch TV programmes linked to books and then read the books afterwards.  Little Princess , Katie Morag , and   Charlie and Lola are good places to start. Talk about what they like or don’t like about the characters.
  • Find story-telling sites like   Little Kingdom , story-telling TV programmes, or story apps for your phone.

8. Car journey games

  • Play ‘The cook’s cat is an amazing cat/beautiful cat/clever cat/daft cat … ‘ and so on, and then make up your own versions (for example, ‘The doctor’s dog … ‘).
  • Play this noisy version of the car game, ‘Who can spot … ?’. It’s great fun – but check out with the driver first before you start this one! Decide on a noise, or a word to call, when you spot the things you’re looking out for. For example, ‘Bang!’ for a yellow car, ‘Buzzz!’ for a bus, and ‘Wow!’ for a bird.
  • Listen to an audiobook.

9. Out and about activities

  • Ask your child to find the things you need to buy when out shopping by reading the labels on products together.
  • Check out your local library or community centre to find out what special activities or clubs are running.
  • Try to do a few visits or find some information together to link with the topic or project work at school.

10. Reading books of all kinds together

  • Carry on reading books of all kinds to and with your child: picture, pop up, information, poetry, eBooks, print books … and the levelled books brought home from school. Video or record your child reading them for fun!

What Should My Child Know Before Learning Long Division?

Before diving into teaching long division, children must have a solid foundation in several key areas. These pre-requisites ensure that they are prepared for the complexities of long division:

  • Understanding Multiplication: Kids should be comfortable with multiplication facts up to 12. This knowledge is fundamental because long division requires frequent multiplication to check and subtract products during the division steps.

Here are some fun activities to brush up your child’s understanding of multiplication facts:

Card Image

  • Basic Division Concepts: Ensure children understand the concept of division as sharing or grouping equally. They should be able to perform simple division tasks without remainders, using numbers that are easy to handle.

Here are some fun activities to brush up your child’s understanding of division facts:

Card Image

  • Familiarity with Subtraction: Subtraction is a significant part of the long division process, used to find the difference after multiplying the divisor. Children should be confident in subtracting large numbers, as they will need to do this repeatedly in each step of long division.

Assess how well your kids are versed with subtraction with these fun subtraction games :

Card Image

  • Number Sense: Good number sense , or an understanding of how numbers work and relate to each other, helps children anticipate the results of multiplication and division, making the process of long division smoother and more intuitive.

Ensuring kids are proficient in these areas makes teaching long division more effective, setting them up for success.

How to Teach Long Division in 6 Steps

Before learning the steps of long division, kids need to understand the key terms used throughout the process. Knowing these will help them follow long division strategies more easily.

  • Dividend: This is the number being divided in the problem. In the long division layout, the dividend is written inside the long division bracket (often called the “house”).
  • Divisor: The number dividing the dividend is called the divisor . The divisor is placed outside the long division bracket.
  • Quotient: The quotient is the answer or the result of the division problem. This is written above the bracket, aligned with the digits of the dividend being divided.
  • Remainder: If the division isn’t exact, there’s an amount left over called the remainder . The remainder is written as “R” followed by the remaining value after the division process.

Introduce long division layout

Setting up a long division problem correctly is an essential skill for kids to learn. Here’s how to structure it visually:

  • Write the Dividend Inside: Start by placing the dividend (the number being divided) inside the long division bracket, often called the “house.” This makes it clear that this number is the one being split into smaller groups.
  • Place the Divisor Outside: Write the divisor (the number doing the dividing) outside, to the left of the bracket. This shows which number will be used repeatedly to divide the dividend into smaller groups.
  • Draw Lines for the Quotient: The space above the bracket is where the quotient (the result of the division) will be written. Each digit of the quotient will align above the digit or digits of the dividend that are being divided.

1: Set Up the Problem

Write 1564 under the division bar and 27 outside the division bar.

  • Look at the first two digits of the dividend (15). Since 15 is less than 27, we need to include the next digit, making it 156.
  • Now, determine how many times 27 can fit into 156. 27 goes into 156 a total of 5 times because 27 multiplied by 6 (the next higher number) would exceed 156.

3. Multiply

  • Multiply the quotient digit found (5) by the divisor (27), which equals 135.
  • Write 135 under 156.

4. Subtract

  • Subtract 135 from 156, which equals 21.
  • Write 21 below 135.

5. Bring Down

Bring down the next digit of the dividend (the 4 in 1564), making the new number 214.

6. Repeat the Process

  • Determine how many times 27 can fit into 214. It fits 7 times (since 27 multiplied by 8 exceeds 214).
  • Multiply 27 by 7 (the next quotient digit) to get 189.
  • Write 189 under 214, and subtract to find the difference: 214 – 189 = 25.

7. Remainder

  • Since there are no more digits to bring down, 25 is the remainder.
  • The complete quotient is 57 with a remainder of 25.

After understanding the layout, kids can apply what they’ve learned by playing these games in, each focusing on different levels of difficulty: 

  • Dividing 2-Digit Numbers by 1-Digit

Card Image

  • Dividing 3-Digit Numbers by 1-Digit

Card Image

  • Dividing 4-Digit Numbers by 1-Digit

Card Image

  • Divide 4-Digit By 2-Digit Numbers

Card Image

To build a strong foundation in long division, it’s crucial for children to practice problems where they bring down each digit consecutively without the complication of zeros . This helps them focus on mastering the basic steps of division:

Sequential Bringing Down: Start with simpler numbers where each digit in the dividend needs to be brought down one at a time. This practice solidifies their understanding of the division process step by step.

Example Problems:

  • 21 ÷ 3: Begin by dividing the first digit. Since 2 divided by 3 doesn’t work, we use 21. 21 divided by 3 equals 7, so 7 is written above the division bar.
  • 154 ÷ 7: Start with the first digit. 1 divided by 7 is not possible, so consider the first two digits, 15. 15 divided by 7 equals 2. Write 2 above the division bar, multiply 2 by 7 (which is 14), subtract 14 from 15 to get 1, then bring down the next digit to make it 14. Continue this way.

Handling zeros can be tricky, but it’s one of the key ways to teach long division. Here’s how to approach problems involving zeros:

Example: 120 ÷ 4

  • Divide: Start by dividing the first non-zero digit. Since 1 is smaller than 4, look at the first two digits, 12. Divide 12 by 4 to get 3.
  • Write the Quotient: Write 3 above the long division bracket.
  • Multiply and Subtract: Multiply 3 by 4 (giving 12) and subtract this from 12, leaving 0.
  • Bring Down Zeros: Bring down the next digit, which is 0, making it 0. Divide this 0 by 4 to get 0. Write 0 next to the 3 in the quotient.
  • Multiply and Subtract: Multiply 0 by 4 to get 0 and subtract, leaving no remainder.

In some cases, division doesn’t result in an even quotient. This means there’s an amount leftover, called a remainder. Here’s how to handle it:

Example: 29 ÷ 4

  • Divide: Start by dividing the first digit, 2, by 4. Since 2 is smaller than 4, consider the first two digits, 29.
  • Find the Quotient: Divide 29 by 4 to get 7. Write 7 above the long division bracket.
  • Multiply and Subtract: Multiply 7 by 4, which gives 28. Subtract 28 from 29, leaving 1.
  • Write the Remainder: Since there’s nothing left to bring down, write “R1” (remainder of 1) next to the 7.

Knowing how to recognize and handle remainders is one of the essential long division tricks that help kids understand why not all division problems divide evenly.
