5 Active Games for Kids at Home
Keeping kids active at home is a huge benefit to their well being and can keep them busy while developing motor skills and coordination. Variety in activity is important to keeping children interested, and building a well-rounded athletic base, here are some activities we think you will both enjoy, everybody wins!
1. Mini Stick Hockey
A staple in Canadian basements, mini stick hockey is a great introduction to the game and helps work on skills like stickhandling, passing, and shooting. Fun for all ages, add targets for more difficulty or solo play.
2. Hand Hockey
A variation with less equipment, Hand Hockey is similar to mini stick hockey but using your hands instead of sticks. The only critical rule is no closing your hand over the ball (no throwing).
3. Mini Soccer
Great for kids because of the proportional size, soccer is the most popular sport in the world for its accessibility, and simple basics. With some Quikrings, you can create endless games
4. Arcade Scoring Remix
With our Multitarget Quikfly, variation in target size adds arcade scoring that remix old favourites and be played with a wider variety of shapes and toys like beanbags, balls, hockey mini sticks or other balls and objects you already own.
5. Tossing Games
One of the great features of the Portanet is being able to lower the angle, changing all of mechanics for target games. While most will think of popular camp or beach games like cornhole, you can also play variations of other sports as well like saucing mini hockey balls or chipping golf balls into the targets.
These are just some ideas for ways to keep kids occupied, and while our Portanet helps make these games easier to play, the important thing is keeping active and having fun, no matter the equipment.
