Need some stay at home mom ideas to keep busy? As a stay at home mom of three kids I know what it’s like to feel stuck at home each day. Many days I feel like we might be watching a bit too much TV. And having a Type-A personality, our days seem to revolve around nap time, and keeping an overall schedule.

It’s so important for not only your kids, but your own well-being to get out of the house though! Even if it’s just for a walk or playing in your backyard. As a family who lives in a small town, with nothing within walking distance, I’ve come up with a list of 3 things you can do with your kids each week to get out of the house.

Stay at home Mom ideas to keep busy

1. Find an indoor playground

These are super trendy right now (especially in areas with long winters) and are pretty inexpensive, typically ranging from $7-$10 per child. It’s a great place to get your kids out of the house, there are new toys for them to play with, and it’s a great social activity. You will even find other stay-at-home moms to chat with! Win-win for everyone.

2. Get a membership to your local Y

The Y is open all day long. I don’t know about you, but I often find the couple hours between after nap and dinner time to be the longest few hours of the day. Which makes it a great time to get out of the house! The Y has so many activities for kids. If there are no structured activities going on, you can go to just play in the gym or go for a swim. You could even go to the gym for yourself, if that’s your thing, and most offer a “daycare” to drop yours kids off at. Yay for some “free time!”

I know you’re probably thinking, “please! we can’t afford that on one income,” but the Y prides itself on making their facilities available for all, so they can work with you to lower the price. A membership for a family of 4 is around $80/month, but if that is too much for your family, they have a program that will work with your income and give you a price based on that.

3. Open gyms

There are lots of gymnastics gyms around and a lot of them offer specific open gym times to the public. It’s a great place for toddlers and kids to get out lots of energy, get some exercise, and practice some skills they probably don’t use on a daily basis. You might even meet a new friend! Check online for your local gyms for days and times. It will probably cost you $10-15 for a few hours.
