I was just wondering if you had any activity ideas for a 2.5 year old. We can't afford to put my daughter into playcare (though I wish we could!), so I am looking for learning-type activities we can do from home (that are preschool oriented). :)
So far I have:
Get a giant box (like a fridge box) and turn it into a playhouse
Color days (and activities like coloring, painting, ect)
Shaving cream is out of the question-- she doesn't like messy textiles (and I have NO clue why! Play-dough is out of the question. :( )
I am also looking for things I can do that are fairly cost-friendly. If it helps at all though, we DO have an easel with a whiteboard on one side (which is magnetic-- we play with fridge magnets often) and a chalkboard on the other.
I try to do fun things with her... I am just seriously running out of ideas.
Thanks so much in advance!! :D
