    Default Activities to do with two kids

    Ds2 is 16m, very clingy. Ds1 is approaching 4. We go for walks, dance, visit parks, read books, shop, build blocks. But sometimes Inbetween all that we get bored. Especially when the weather is terrible and we have to be indoors ( if we can't leave the house due to me preparing dinner or some other reason we are staying in).
    I need some ideas to do with both if possible. Im lacking motivation in the role playing, play school department.

    I was just going to suggest this. I've been doing this since ds2 could crawl (ds1 was about 3 1/2) and they love it.

    Also, when you can go outside collect leaves, twigs, flowers anything really and let them dry out. Then on rainy days sit down and make collages.

    Make play-doh.

    sometimes I just put playdoh on the table, with the plastic cutting tools that come with it, or just get lots of crayons, pencils and paper and get them to draw..

    Or treasure hunts, but your little one might be too young for that

    I get big pieces of paper and stick it down on the kids table and let them both draw with crayons. Works well.

    Megabloks is a good joint activity too.

    Dancing is always fun too - put on some music and let them go dancing .

    My 2 also like little cars that they can ride on/in. My ds used to push my dd when she couldn't push herself, but now that she's 21 months they both go up & down the hallway on the ride on cars.

    Another cool product is a Hover Soccer ball. My ds got one for his 6th Birthday and it's super cool - it hovers over the ground and can be pushed around the room. It's surrounded in foam so it doesn't damage things. My 2 kiddies love it. I've since found some at the local toy shop for around $20.
