It’s October and the weather is starting to steadily drop. For many, this means thinking ahead to winter and what they’ll be doing to make the most of the cold months.
For parents, this means thinking of some indoor activities for your kids to enjoy as they start to spend more and more time indoors.
This can be a tall task, as there will be days where parents have to plan for indoor activities that will occupy their kids for an entire day. Arts and crafts. Movie nights. Reading books. These are great activities, but as any parent will tell you, you’ll need more activities in your arsenal. One thing that will occupy your kids for hours on end is of course, video games.
If you are looking for some free online games that your kids can enjoy this winter, then make sure you check out these gems:
Bazooka Joe Rapid Rescue
For anyone familiar with video game history, you’ll appreciate the abundant nostalgia dripping from Bazooka Joe Rapid Rescue. This game is inspired by the 1981 Donkey Kong arcade game, which was the first game to feature Mario (though at the time, he was known as Jumpman).
The gameplay is pretty simple. As Bazooka Joe, you must climb the tower while avoiding obstacles in order to rescue a pack of Bazooka gum. You kids will love this throwback, retro-style arcade game.
Baby Bottle Pop Silly Blast
How far can your kids make this chicken fly? In Baby Bottle Pop Silly Blast, your goal is to make you chicken fly as far as it can in order to reach the goal. With each level, the distance you need to travel gets larger, so you have to use all of your skills to get through the later levels.
Your chicken only has limited fuel, but there are items you can use to ensure your chicken stays airborne. Kids will have so much fun taking their flying chicken for a run and then seeing if they can beat their own high scores. Happy flying!
Gum Jumper is a fun, frantic jumping game. In this game, you take control of the Gum Jumper to use platforms to keep jumping up. The goal is to get as high as possible in order to rack up as high a score as possible.
Though it won’t be a walk in the park. There are obstacles that you have to overcome, like platforms with spikes and platforms that break. Also, the higher up you go, the harder the game gets. Luckily, there are gum power-ups you can collect along the way to make it easier to climb higher.
The flavour factory is under attack, and it is up to your child to save the factory. In Sweet Security, you take control of a security robot to stop comets from wrecking the factory.
Your robot has an impressive arsenal of candies from the flavour factory to use to defend the place. Each one is mapped to a different keyboard key and you can easily switch between each to use to break up the comets.
These are 4 free online games that can provide your kids with hours of fun during the winter months. Whenever you need something to entertain your kids this winter, be sure to grab a laptop or tablet and load any of these games.
