Top 9 Fun Activities for Kids


Explore our top fun activities for kids at home with these creative ways to keep the kids entertained and sneak in a little learning too!

BIG NEWS! We’re celebrating our 9th birthday of The Educator’s Spin On It!

Hard to believe that it’s been nine years since we first started this website for parents. So many things have changed since then. Our kids have gotten older, that’s for sure and our experiences have grown as individuals and as a family.

Fun fact: My husband is now a little part of behind the scenes on our site as well as my kids.

There’s one thing that hasn’t changed and that’s my passion for creating for you fun ideas to do with your kids. Sharing ways to ensure you’re able to give them just what they need to grow and become smart, happy, and loved kids.

I was looking through our 1000+ kids activities on our site from over the years and found that there are some things our website’s visitors like you are often drawn towards. I thought it might be fun to do a top 9 activities for our 9th birthday.

We’d love to know which post is your favorite from the site, so please leave us a comment to let us know.

I’d also like to give a big thanks to the following top websites that have sent us new visitors from their sites over the past nine years. I feel so lucky to call each of these site owners and bloggers my friends.
