My favorite thing to do with my son when I am lost for things to do is to build a fort with pillows couch cushions chairs and sheets, I let him have a snack or lunch in there, and when he was younger he would knock it down and drive me nuts but the fun of making a new space together and hiding alone is lots of fun and stirs up the day. We have also done some pretty amazing things decorating cardboard boxes and turning them into garages, houses and so on. The idea of coloring something that isn't flat is intriguing and its amazing what they come up with.
