Scrapbooking is always fun
Me + DP 01.03.2010 = DD 22.02.2011 + DS 20.01.2014 = <3
Gardening, draw on chalk board, go to park (pack a picnic) story time at the library, rotate toys fortnightly and bring out 'new' toys. Cut out pictures from magazines and stick them on paper, play soccer outside, blow bubbles, play hide and seek and chase each other, play dress ups. Cook simple things like ANZAC biscuits, look for butterflies and birds in the garden, do a treasure hunt.
Try and keep things simple, the world is still fascinating to toddlers
DD loves washing our cars or motorbikes. She has her own sponge and helps out and loves using the hose.
Subbing too.... We had a crap day today, I had no inspiration or energy for anything... May just refer to this on those days!
Subbing... some great ideas.. my little boy loves to fill his outside toy truck with gravel and then empty.. keeps him entertained for a while.
Some things my kids 4.5yo dd and 3 yo ds enjoy:
Wrapping up their books and toys and pretend they are presents
