    Default Entertaining a 1 year old?

    Sorry if this has been done before. What things do you do with your 1 year old all day?

    We go out everyday and go to the park. We do housework, he empties drawers and cupboards and plays with a tub of water on the deck. He pushes his walker around, throws his ball, we read books.

    What else?

    DS loves to dance ! So we dance a lot, we also garden ( he has a mini watering can and gloves) and we go and water the herb garden every day and just recently I bought him a giant container of those bigger lego style blocks so he is obsessed in building towers and knocking them down! Plus he has about 4 bikes/trikes so we spend nearly an hour a day in the yard riding those!

    DS does not enjoy dancing. Weird huh?

    Thanks for the other ideas though. Love the mini watering can idea. That's cute!

    you could get a few canvas' and some paint and let him go crazy with his hands and feet - some beautiful artwork to treasure forever

    we also played block crashing

    though DS was walking at 11 months, so walking was a lot of entertainment for him - maybe you and DS could start a veggie garden together?
