  • Bring a tv to your room if it isn't already there and rent tons of new releases. Make a picnic in the bed. Play cards, etc.

  • I am on bed rest and I have a 4 year old fixing to be 5 and we lay in bed watch tv play with her babies and she just like laying talking to her new brother. BUT you have a lil boy coming stay with you. So maybe you can like make your bed into this really cool race track and yall play with cars.

  • Lots of board games  (click on family fun games or activity books)

     Let him play trucks and cars on the floor in your room, 

    Read books that teach him something (

    Get some superhero dolls for him to play with  (click on Superhero)
