    Default What's your go to indoor activity?

    What activities do you/and the kids enjoy setting up /doing? Especially for 2 and 3 year olds (:-)) at the moment my boys are loving playdoh and Lego sometimes playdoh and Lego together.

    I have a 4.5 year old and a just turned 2 year old. I think the kids favourites would be

    Playdoh
    Obstacle course
    Using the couch cushions as a trampoline!
    Duplo
    Coloured rice (with containers, dump trucks, muffin trays, etc)
    My DD (4.5) loves puzzles and craft
    DS (2) loves playing ball (we play in the hallway with doors closed so he can't destroy anything!) - kicking, catching, hitting.

    ETA - I love reading to the kids when I can encourage them to sit still for long enough! (harder with the 2 year old).

    My three year old DS2 is majorly into Lego and play dough as well. Other favourite things to do are:
    Making a tent out of chairs and a sheet and playing camping.
    Tea parties with his toys.
    Baking.
    Simple crafts.

    Don't have 2 and 3 year old's anymore...

    DSD at 2.5 loved trains. We would set up tracks together (I would do more complicated ones that she was in awe of) and flick the switch on and watch them go round and round. She loved it.

    DSS at 2 wasn't into playing. He would pull stuff out of boxes and put them back in, over and over, all day. In between screaming with reflux. He was similar at 3, except he started following his sister around and trying to do what she was doing.

    My 3yo DS loves playing with trains or cars, I got a pucnic rug style mat from Super Cheap that has roads on it. He also likes making cubby houses or nests. And sometimes we will make cupcakes together which he loves and helps me measure out the ingredients and mixing it up.
