    Default indoor toddler activities please

    Please can you share soem of the activities you do with your toddlers indoors. Although we have 5 acres, it is quite unsafe at the moment to have our 15 month old outside for any length of time.

    We currently draw, play with play doh, building with blocks, terrorising mummies cupboards, jigsaws, reading books, (some more but have mental blank)
    I think its me getting bored with the same activites, but surely if we dont spice them up she wont learn anything new.



    Please help by giving ideas, any ideas welcome
    Thankyou

    There used to be a thread about this... will have to have a look.

    Some other activities are:

    Obstacle courses
    Tents & cubbies with blankets & tables & chairs.
    Dancing to music
    Singing songs with actions
    Maybe a bit too young yet for cooking?
    We do crafts with anything we can find... toilet rolls become shakers and then we sing.

    Is she too young for painting?. The Crayola paints i find are great - they wash outta their clothes if they happen to get any on them.....

    Bubbles in the bathroom.
    Cleaning the bath - strip off, give them a squirt bottle with water & a washer (Zander loves this!)
    Dress ups.

    Toddlers love to "help". So what about letting her dust with either a feather duster or a rag, "sweep" with a dustpan and brush, or help fold clothes from washing and put them away - LOL we always end up with messy drawers tho!

    Listening to and dancing to music is one of our favourite past-times atm.
