We have been stuck in the house because it is toocold to go anywhere. We are starting to get a little crazy. Anybody have any ideas for fun things to do inside?

I go through the same thing at home with my daughter. It seems like we do the same things all the time. What I try to do is just keep switching up what she has available to play with. Storing a few toys in the closet for a few weeks will make them seem more "new" to her when you take them out again.

Also, adding little variations to everyday activities make playtime more fun. My daughter loves to color!!! So I introduce her to differnet things to color with and we've also incorporated coloring into bath time with bath crayons!!

Make home made instruments and make up your own songs....

Add photo's to your child's art work and bind together with tape or string to make their first scrapbook...

Adding color to bubble bath makes fun colored bubbles to enjoy during bath time.....

Make forts with blankets, sheets, and your furniture.....

Play hide and seek....

Hope these help and best of luck till spring!!!

If there is snow outside, bring it in the house (say on the kitchen floor) in a rubber maid type bin and play with it (with measuring cups, spoons, toys, etc.) I bought a cheap shower liner to put on the floor so my messes were easier to clean up. Make a tent out of sheets, "finger paint" with chocolate pudding, blow bubbles inside...hope these help!

Well most people wouldn't say this but me and my 14 month old color and finger paint, as long as you keep a close eye and use non toxic supplies you can do almost anything from handprints to footprints and so on. She loves getting her fingers messy. LOL We also roll balls back and forth and play "airplane".
