  • Sing songs with accompanying motions (Itsy-Bitsy Spider) or sounds (Old MacDonald). Dance. Count. Say/sing the alphabet. Do arts & crafts. Build a tent with blankets and have a picnic lunch inside. Play school, beauty shop, or some other pretend game. Do puzzles. Read books. Make up stories together. Make dress up costumes to go with their favorite books. Cook together. Have them start learning to do chores by helping you. Play outside. Go for a walk. Go to the park. Go to the library for story time. The younger one is probably not ready, but try memory card games or simple board games (you can do this with the older one while the younger one naps if it doesn't work well together). Make up games outside. Throw balls. Ride tricycles. Build with blocks. Put a mattress on the floor and let them jump. Do gymnastics, yoga, or an excercise video (dancing ones with music are great). Plant flowers or veggies.

  • Make buildings out of boxes or cartons and set up a city inside or out, and then play with it with cars and trucks. Make ramps and things for their cars. Get some hula hoops. Get some water guns or super soakers. Play with bubbles. Play with sidewalk chalk. Have a picnic. Do something for a neighbor. Pull weeds from the yard. Put a tent up in your yard. Be creative!!!
