  • When my son and I can't go outside to play, we always bring out the rice. I have a big tub of rice with lots of little cups, measuring spoons, etc. My son loves playing in it and pretending to cook. My 8yr. old daughter even joins in sometimes. :)

  • Wow that rice idea sounds like fun!! We usually play, and read books. I go to school online so I try to do homework and housework while he is sleeping or at pre-school. Nothing too exciting here.

  • my two yr. old twins love laundry baskets with laundry, they help me put the clothes in the dryer. Mega blocks are awesome, coloring, i gave them their own notebook with their name on it and inside are numbers and abc's they love to scribble, a tent they play for a long time in it. Role playing, dancing, dress up, i also gave them a set of old house keys, a big ball, balloons, empty boxes big enough for them to get in it. lil ones so they can put things in them,wooden puzzles,i put a mattress on the floor and we jump on it, turn lights off and give them a flash light,

  • I take online classes too, so when she wants to play by herself or is napping, I do schoolwork. We go outside when the mosquitoes aren't bad and the weather is nice. Otherwise, we watch Curious George and Reading Rainbow together and just play our little games. I sometimes build her a little fort she can hide in and she has a ton of cardboard boxes of different sizes she likes to play with. And we dance and I sing to her, this is one of her favorite things.

  • I'm not really a SAHM, but I stay at home with my 2 year old quite frequently since I work nights and have an odd school schedule. I make him help me clean, well I give him a small broom and dustpan if I'm sweeping, or a wet rag so he can 'wash' the walls :) The rice idea sounds awesome though, I might have to get some of that!
