  • I do lots of arts and crafts with my daughter you can find alot of different websites to get different ideas some of the website I go to are www.sproutonline.com www.familyfun.com www.kaboose.com and many more. My daughter like me to paint her toes. Sometimes we pop some popcorn and watch a movie together we have been watching Chrismas movies lately. I also let my daughter help clean around the house. It takes twice as long but it gets her involed. I also try to go outside with her to get some fresh air if it is really cold we only go out for like 15 mins then we go back inside.We read alot of books together and sing lots of songs.It is getting cold outside so you can also make some cookies or muffins with her. If you have a walmart they sell really cheap mix for like 50 cents and all you have to do is add water or milk. I usually get the one with milk I think it is better for kids.

  • I watch tv, I cook, clean. The obvious. And then I listen to music, I play with my daughter. I go out sometimes, to the park etc. I have friends over. I go on cafemom occasionally. That's about it.. Mmm it sounds boring but it suits me just fine.

  • I wake up at around 7 in the morning and wake my oldest up at around 8:30 take him to school then spend my time playing games such as puzzles, play dough, magic sand etc. then do some housework, make the boys dinner take them out in the park maybe then go pick my oldest up and bring him home play with them for a bit give them a snack the at 6 i put dinner on and my husband is already home playing with the children then we spend the night in the living room doing whatever untill bedtime.

  • I have a 4 yr old and a 20 month old. they do some playing together. they watch about 1-2 hrs of tv. I put on music and we dance or excercise. We have tea parties. No tea just water. With little snacks. Colors and coloring books. 2 days a week i also watch a 3 yr old and a 9 month old. those days the kids all keep themselfs busy. Sometimes I go to the mall and play at the play area. I have a few puzzles. Also there are online games at Fischer Price.com and great printouts to color. We stay pretty busy

  • We have a trampoline that they like jumping on. I have a 32 mth old an 1 yr old. They play outside, in the sandbox. Write outside with chalk and paint ,when it was nicer. If its above 32, I still let them go outside and bundle them up. I am glad it hasn't started snowing here yet. I read to them. I let them color. I do have to watch my 1 yr old to make sure she doesn't eat all the crayons. Lol. They play in their room. Entertain themselves for the most part. When its nice we go to the park, the one down the street or the one with parks. Kids are really simple. My son just love the playground.
