On The Move All Year Round: 50 Toys and Games for Indoor Active Play

A Mighty Girl's top picks of toys and games to keep kids active indoors while sheltering in place.

To help you find the perfect options for your kids, we've featured our favorite indoor active play toys and games in this blog post. Whether she's climbing through a play tunnel, finding her center with a balance board, or even trying a little (foam) axe throwing, she'll love having a few new activities to try from the safety of home!

If you're eager to stay active outdoors all year round, you can also find many active outdoor toys in our Outdoor Play section.
