    I was thinking maybe a small trampoline may help? We are doing it for DS who does not stop sometimes as well.

    Default Amusing a 2.5 yr old

    What about a play tunnel or small indoor tent or small indoor slide?

    Does he have a scooter or small bike he could ride indoors?

    We have a tunnel, I will bring it back on. Maybe he will want to play with it again. He got bored of it and I haven't brought it out for ages. Thanks. I might have a look at the shop today while he's at say care.

    Actually a little bike might not be a bad idea. See what I can find. Thank you.

    I do wonder how long it will take him to get bored with stuff because it seems like 5 minutes

    What about putting a few things away in a cupboard and then swapping things over so that it isn't some he has seen for a while so it feels like a new toy all over again....
    I find my kids get too overwhelmed if there is too much on offer at once...

    Can you set it up at night after he goes to bed and then he can just play? Might get a bit longer out of him.
