Fun Activities To Keep Kids Busy With Razor

**We were sent an electric scooter from Razor in exchange for a review. No other compensation was exchanged.**


Some days are easier than others. Some days my kids can entertain themselves without any issues. Other days? Well, they need help. It can be tough being inside for so long. My daughter especially loves getting fresh air, and when Razor sent her an electric scooter, she was thrilled:





With the Razor scooter, she was able to get outside. She made sure to maintain a proper distance if she came across someone:





It was easy to set up and to charge. The battery works up to 40 minutes so Natalie was able to zip around. She also used her feet sometimes to push herself along. It was easy to put together and it's sturdy, so I don't have to worry about it falling apart.





If you want to pick one up, click here!



Razor sent in some other suggestions to keep kids entertained:


Simon Says – This classic game gets an indoor twist with commands like “Simon says hop to your pillow and back,” “Simon Says run up the stairs and back,” and “Simon Says bring me a spoon”


Dance Party – Nothing gets kids going like a dance party! Pick a favorite playlist and crank up the jams! Learn a new move on YouTube or try a round of freeze dance, pausing your music and holding statue-still til it starts up again (Alexa is a great freeze dance partner!)


Tape Shapes – Clear some space on a non-carpeted floor and use painter’s tape to make large triangles, rectangles, squares, and circles on the floor. Assign each child a starting space, then call moves like “crab walk to the circle,” “crawl to the square,” or “jump backwards to the rectangle.”


Balloon Ball – Blow up some balloons, toss a sheet over two chairs to make a “net”, and serve up a round of indoor balloon volleyball – just don’t let that balloon touch the floor!


Laundry Basketball – If your kids are bonkers for basketball, empty out a laundry basket and take turns tossing a Nerf ball into the basket, backing up two steps each time you score. See who can shoot from the farthest distance!


Soda Bottle Bowling – Dig some empty soda or water bottles out of the recycling and set up an indoor bowling alley in your hallway. Roll a soft ball toward your targets and see who can knock down the most “pins” and reset them the fastest.


Long Jump – Using painter’s tape, lay six 2-foot strips, each about a foot apart. Assign a starting spot and see who can jump the farthest!


Potato Pass – Kids waddle their way toward a bucket or bowl – with a potato between their knees – and see who can drop it in first in this half-baked indoor game! Make it tricky by placing the bucket in another room, forcing turns or steps along the way.


Be My Mirror – Pair up your kids and assign a starter to make a series of moves while their partner tries to mirror what they’re doing. Get through the series and switch roles – miss one and begin again!


Hula Hoop Marathon – Grab a hoop and set the timer to see who can last the longest. Expert “hoopers” can try swiveling their hula hoops on their necks, arms, and ankles.



How have you been keeping busy?

  13. It looks like she was having a great time! I love that it encourages her to get out and get some fresh air - so important right now. The balloon ball suggestion is one that we use often with the band that I'm involved with - we have music classes for younger kids at the start of the night, but the Sr Band rehearsal (which includes their parents, therefore their rides home) goes longer. So, I've had the kids in playing balloon ball in another room - keeps them busy, they have a blast and it's not an activity that's likely going to get anyone hurt lol
