  • Well we actually have a divider wall between the living room and kitchen, it is open on both sides and since my son was old enough to run he has run circles around that thing. Also dancing to music, or trampoline jumping. I'll even break out the hoola hoops inside. Ooooh, have crawling races across the living room. Or play hide and seek. Fun Stuff!

  • We have lots of crafts to do. I have a play tent and tunnel that i pull out every know and then. We watch movies, play games, dance to music. We go to the library. Get a book there on ideas of things to do inside. Another good one. Pull out blankets and sheets and chairs and make forts. If you can get a big box like a fridge box. Make a playhouse out of is and let the kids color on it and have fun with it.

  • The Family Fun website is great, it has loads of ideas. On the Mothering Magazine website there is a collection of great back articles and it has great discussion boards. Other parenting magazines have websites that have ideas for activities.

  • Does your library have a kids area?

  • We go to the library, out to lunch, play a game inside, or play cards, like uno, war, memory, etc... Watch movies, read stories, color, do puzzles..
