    blocks/duplo
    dressups
    pretend play/role play - dressing, feeding, bathing dolls, playing with trucks/cars.
    Build a cubby house - a cot sheet over a chair/box is awesome fun, easy, and simple to clean up.
    Playing in boxes

    Dont be afraid to bring the outside toys inside!!
    We had a small foldable plastic slide from bunnings i often brought into our lounge, also his mini trampoline...for those days where they just want to move but its so cold and wet that the thought makes you feel ill!
    We also have 1 small quiet ride on bike thats always allowed inside/under cover, but not OUTside
    Ball play (we use our hallway as theres no windows) with a soft ball and kick/throw/catch there

    Cooking - easy cake mix/pancakes/mini muffins/dinner - anything! just make sure you pre-prepare whatever you can so its basically, tip in, mix, and cook!

    Dont be afraid to rug them up though and brave outside! Get gumboots and a raincoat/umbrella and jump in puddles, look at the garden (things are different when wet!) OR...my son just LOVES a loop on the local bus! It costs me like $1.10, its only about 3mins walk to the bus stop, and fills in an hour, its warm, and gets him out of the house!
    These are awesome ideas! Love the pasta and dump trucks! Can't believe I've never thought of that! We're currently in London so when DS starts moving and needing more activities some of these ideas will be a godsend!

    I also bought some storage containers to put everything in.
    Thanks for the great idea

    Oh great
    It was an idea I saw online. My 4 year old enjoys this more than my 2 year old.

    My 2yo DD spent 5!!!! hours pasting the other day ripped up catalogues onto A3 paper. She also did about 8 paintings, all of this was after playgroup where she did craft there too.
    I am loving these other ideas though. Especially the contact one
