When I was a kid we use to have indoor olympics that involved jumping over all the furniture. Then we would have a finale of sliding down the stairs in sleeping bags over and over again. grin

I saw something in Toys R Us called Zippity.

What about Carpet skates? they'd keep your kids active, my kids have got them, they always come out once or twice a week and they do have great fun on them! It normally involves moving all my furniture around though so they can make the best route around the house!

Trampoline - small one, folding if necessary

Loving the look of those carpet skates - would they work on wooden floors or just carpet?

not sure, we've got carpets! they work on grass too! although I've banned them for being used outside now, can you imagine the mess they'd make on my carpets once they'd been outside!

now those carpet skates do look good!, that would keep them busy and use up all that energy, could be the christmas present I'm looking for! wonder whether my eldest who's 11 would like them as well as the younger ones!

we've just been given a magnetic dartboard - obviously better for older dcs but it has had an amazing effect on older dcs in this horrid weather! DH and I been using it when dcs in bed too!

where do you get them from?

Tottytightdraws - are you asking where do you get the magnetic dartboard from, or the carpet skates?
I can't help with skates but I found the dartboards here although I'm not sure where our friend got ours from, this looks similar.
