I'm sure I asked this all the time for different ages but I'm struggling to keep my 2.5 yr old amused. DS is a ball of energy. The energiser bunny. He's got 2 speeds.. flat out and asleep.
With all the terrible weather we have had our yard is like a swamp. DS loves playing outside but it's been terrible. There's suppose to be months more of rain. When we get to play outside... He has some toys he likes to play with, he loves golf, his dump trucks, trampoline, trike and other things. What else is there I might be able to add outside to play with?
The other and probably the biggest problem is inside... he is destructive. He's so go go go that he doesn't like craft much, by the time I set paint etc up he paints for 2 minutes and he's gone. We have playdoh, drawing, colouring books, paints etc but he loses interest quickly.
He seems to need to be really engaged in something but when we try he loses interest or turns the game too rough, by that I mean we could be playing with cars on a mat and he will want to crash them but then it turns to every car within a metre has to be thrown. Regardless of what's around. If he's not playing too rough he's being really destructive. DF and I made a cardboard car he could sit in with him the other day.. within 20 minutes he had destroyed it.
I'm just running out of ideas with him. I have no idea how to amuse him and how to occupy his mind. Any ideas of games or techniques? Anything. I swear all I'm doing is yelling.
He can be such a lovely little boy as well so I do understand it could be his age but I'm losing my mind.
Help please x
