  • Oh yes! Build a tent/fort and pretend you're camping or in the ocean, arts and crafts (painting, coloring, glue-ing), helping you sweep/clean (my daughter likes to put socks on her hands and "help me dust"), banging on pots and pans, having a "dance party," inviting friends over, an extra bath, playing house with dolls, playing with cars and trucks, helping you make brownies or cake or cookies, having a stuffed animal parade.. pretty much anything silly will do! It's okay to let loose and make a mess once in a while too, I used to find myself worrying about arts and crafts and messy toys everywhere.. but in the end it's just more fun to let it happen..
