  • Library storytime, edible playdough, ball catch, playgrounds, sidewalk chalk, build a "tent" out of blankets with the couch cushions and have a special snack in there, have a picnic at a local park, go to a lake and feed the ducks/geese, zoo if you have a local one, check out indoor city pools. Check in your community, here we have a magazine called Carolina Parent that has all types of events for kids and which bookstores are having special storytimes or craft stores are having free kids crafts - if you have something like that it's a really good resource!

  • I take mine to the playground...she loves the slides and playing in the sand (we bring a little sand pail and shovel). We go on themed walks (colors, numbers, naming...where you point out all the different colors you see or count things or name everything, etc.). She loves playing with mega blocks, puzzles, etc. Arts and crafts are her favorite. Color wonder coloring books are great. She LOVES stickers (they're constantly all over my house!). Sidewalk chalk is really good. Crayons and coloring books...although you have to keep a close eye in the house...otherwise you have crayon on the walls and in the carpet. Finger paint is a favorite...we do it in the tub before a bath...safest place. She also loves she pushes him around in a stroller quite a bit each day. She watches Sesame Street and Baby Einstein DVDs. Other than that, she just likes to be involved in whatever it is that I'm doing...laundry, dishes..

  • My little girl loves to go on the swings and slide! Also coloring, drawing on a chalkboard, playing ball (kicking or throwing) being pushed in a little car, reading books, singing the itsy bitsy spider and patty cake, looking at pictures, being chased around, playing fetch with the dog, going swimming (when its warm of course) playing in the sandbox
