It's going to be 38 degrees today, again! We're now all bored out of our minds after spending the last couple of days hiding inside in the air con...cabin fever!!!
So, what can you do to entertain a 1.5yo in this heat? Hit me with your ideas!

Ikea? DD used to love going through all of the little apartments and opening and closing everything and playing hide and seek. I'm sure the staff hated us but we certainly weren't the only ones! For a little one it's quite a big walk so always slept well after. The little trolleys that the kids sit in spin 360 degrees and you can walk along beside instead of behind. Fruit salad, jelly and ice cream. Useful for rainy days in winter too.

The state library, museum and art gallery in Perth are all free, child friendly and air conditioned and a great way to pass the time. It might be worth checking out what's on in your area?

We're going stir crazy too!
Lots of water play
A shopping centre that has a free indoor play area
Shady spot on the beach (some beaches have trees that overhang the beach and provide lovely shady spots on the sand)
City Cat ride down the river
The State Library (they have a fantastic kids area).

Sand/water table ($25 from Kmart)
Outdoor pool with toys
Sprinkler (put it underneath the trampoline if you have one!)
Out & about:
Local library for story time
Nursery with a cafe (my 18 month old loves exploring, plus they are shady & constantly being watered in the heat!)

I freeze some of their small toys in containers of water with a couple of drops of food colouring in it. When it's hot they sit in a wading pool with a bit of water and use 'tools' to break their toys free
