  • Pots and pans and tupperware in the kitchen are always hours of entertainment! They have the little inflatable ball pits too, my neighbor has one in her living room and her son loves it. It's also a great place to store a few toys when not in use. Good luck!!!

  • crayons and plain paper, magnet sets, blocks, make-believe

    All require some creativity and encourage the use of imagination.

  • Go "bowling"! We do it with a small ball and a few plastic cups. You can also play "sorting" games with small (but toddler safe objects) and a few small bowls or cups. Sort by whatever he knows be it color, size, type of toy, etc. My 2 yr old loves to put things into cups/bowls. For future reference, go to a dollar store (or crafts store) and buy a selection of different colored puff balls (the 2 inch version). You can create all sorts of simple games on the fly for a toddler. Try sorting, blowing them off your hand or around a table, hiding them, etc.
