Looking for ideas on fun indoor and outdoor activities to help keep my 2 year old entertained and having fun.

Trampolines are also very good especially for getting little ones sleepy and to bed easily. a little more pricy then all the others but very worth it!

My 15 month old likes to paint with vanilla pudding. I don't like him to use regular paint because he tries to eat it, but you can make pudding fingerpaint by adding food coloring to instant vanilla pudding. If it's spread lightly enough, it will dry and you can keep the artwork.

I also like to make a little indoor play area for him (things he can climb on, jump into, etc) using things we have around the house. I make a fort with pillows a tunnel for him to crawl through using an opened cardboard box.

for summer we get bubbles, side walk chalk, balls to kick around, water tables or sand tables if you have one. if not they are a fun thing to get. toddler scooters and trycicles, and they seem to have an endless amount of fun. my kids are 3 and one and a half and both of them can do all those acitivites and they love it.

indoor activities we do are coloring, singing, nursery rhyme songs and learning hand guestures that go with some of them. playing games like ring around the rosies or red light green light. we do little scavenger hunts. we build a tent out of blankets etc. and read books with flashlights under them. they love getting pages of stickers and sticking them all over me and them and paper and whatever else i'll alow them too. like my laundry basket that i dont care about being covered. plato, if your up for the mess. painting (washable paint). we get big balloons and play catch to help them learn with out getting hurt. they love that. we play dress up but with a boy you could do prince dress up and get a little sword or stick horse and do cowboy stuff. my girls like those things too.
