My son is 27 months and most mornings we go out and have play dates, go shopping or go for a swim. He naps for two hours over lunch. In the afternoon we do any of the following. Painting, drawing, sandpit, toy cars, toy trains, kick a ball, go for a walk, paddle pool, bake, watch a dvd (rainy day!), read books. DS is also quite content to play by himself for a couple of hours while I suffer with severe morning sickness.
