Hi! Have a one year old is busy! I have a one year old girl! And she gets into everything, and loves to climb anything she can find to climb! I can't keep up with her most days! It's not going to hurt him to have him in the heat for a short period of time! Don't take him out too long, but get him outside. The fresh air will tire him out!! Try to keep him in the shade if that is possible! But if you really don't want to take him out, there are lots of things you can try to do to keep your little one busy! Hopefully these ideas work for you!
* my daughter loves stacking blocks on top of each other and then knock them down...this keeps her busy for a while!
* I have taken a Kleenex box/empty wipe box, and filled it with square pieces of fabric. she loves pulling them out, and putting them all back in.
* this one you want to make sure you are right there with them, but let them rip up pieces of paper! What child doesn't enjoy ripping and tearing things apart!! But like i said you must be there with him so he doesn't end up putting them in his mouth!
* roll the ball back and forth to each other!
Sometimes if i'm busy and just need to get something done....i can't just sit with her constant as i have 2 other children....i will put her in her playpen with a bunch of toys. And loves and could spend hours in there!!
Hopefully these ideas help. I know they have been great for me!! But honestly taking them outside in the heat for a while won't hurt them....just make sure they drink lots, have sunscreen on, a hat, and don't let them be out for too long! Plus then i find they sleep much better!!
Good luck!

Wow that's great... Unfortunately they don't offer gymnastics for toddlers here in Delhi... But he is going to Gymboree where he loves to play!

My little one started walking at 10 months (he's now 17 mos) and was/is the same! I did take him to the park in the afternoon, but I will be looking into gymnastics classes next. They have a 1-3 year old class where they can run and climb :)
