How do you play/ teach your 16 month olds?  I'm getting bored everyday and it's starting to drive me nuts!  They play a few moment on their own but they really want me to play on the floor with them all day too.  I need some new things to do with my twins so each day is fun and rewarding for them.   What things are your 16 months able to do now?  My twins are walking but they don't talk much.  They say the basic words momma, dadda, babba, book, juice...etc  They undersatnd many more words than they can say but getting them to say new words has been slow.   Any advice ladies?

Have you tried peanut butter playdoe with some kitchen utensils?  I forgot the receipe (maybe some one has it?) but they can eat it, play with it, squish it, throw it(doesnt really stick in rugs!).  It keeps for about three days in the fridge. 

Walks in the morning also helped.  My kids and i would pack a little snack, take a bag for things they found, and take a walk.  It doesnt have to be long and it can be the same route, but you can encourage them to touch the bark on the trees, count the cars passing by (while you sit and have a snack), or say hi to the birdies.  My kids learned a lot from those walks and it gave me a break from being couped up in the house all day.
