Indoor activities

Jeanette - posted on 06/05/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have 2 year old boy/girl twins and a 3.5 year old son. We are currently stuck indoors alot because of all the rain we've been getting. We only have one vehicle and my husband takes it to work. So we are trapped at home and indoors. They are starting to get bored with their toys and coloring. I don't own any play dough. They are constantly fighting because of how bored they are and I don't want them to just set in front of the tv all day. I'm just looking for cute craft ideas or fun games that we could play. Thank you ladies for any help or advice you could offer.

When cooped inside, I find the large motor activities are really important. We installed a swing that converts into a trapeze into a doorway. It's very sturdy and our kids have had a LOT of fun on it. There's also those small jogging trampolines that you can unscrew the legs on--it can be stored behind a couch.
And I haven't done so myself, but you can make your own play dough (without the dyes that'll ruin your rugs!). Here's the recipe:
And there's a lot to be said for putting on the rainboots & raincoats and going out anyway, especially on a small hiking trail.
