what are some crafts or fun things I can do with my DD?

  • Get a big box and make a playhouse. She can help you decorate it with washable markers. You can also just build a tent with sheets and furniture; get her a flashlight and go inside the tent with her to read a story or have a picnic meal or snack.

  • fingerpainting is a good idea and she will try to eat the paint, just be sure to buy like the crayola non toxic stuff and it won't hurt her. Like anything else you just have to teach her 'that doesn't go in the mouth'.
    There are lots of things to do inside. Painting, reading, watch a movie together, have a picnic...if you get too bored, bundle up and take a walk then come home for some hot cocoa!

  • here is a recipe for edible finger paint:

    you could paint pumpkins as well (although I would use a paint brush and non-toxic paints to avoid bugs)

    dance videos (for kids) are great for you and her to get exercise, or playing cames to learn colors and shapes, numbers and letters (lots of ideas on nickjr's parents connect website for those).

  • and you can still bundle her up, rack up some leafs and jump in them and have a little fun outdoors for those few still sunny, semi warm days.

  • don't be afraid to check out local harvest/pumpkin festivals in your area either.
