share your fun indoor activities!

Hi everyone. I think most of us are experiencing a crazy heat wave this week. I live in western NY, and we have a warning today (any probably all week) due to a high heat index. I figured a lot of us are going to be stuck inside with the kiddos this week and thought I would start a thread to share ideas on how to keep busy!

My ideas-painting in the bathtub, building a fort and having a "picnic" lunch in there. We may hit up the science museum this week.

Anyone have any fun activities they want to share???

    I'm guessing watching the Lorax is a bit less creative idea than you are looking for?  lol

    I'm boring. DS kind of just plays with all his toys but he is still young so I am of no help.

  • Blow up a bunch of balloons and let him go at it.  Last week DH did this for Oliver and he has a great time kicking them and hitting them up in the air.  He still has some and I've just been putting them in his closet at night.

    ETA:  Also, DD started drawing funny faces on the balloons last night.  Oliver told her what he wanted her to draw.  Like one has a puppy face.

    Laundry baskets are awesome non-toy toys.

  • Take a big box and let Lo decorate it. Turn it into a spaceship! 

    Baking aka stirring a bunch if random shiit in bowls and making huge messes. 

    I bust out the plastic eggs from Easter and we do egg hunts

    Check to see if your area has a children's museum

    Ha..this is where we're at right now too. At 6 1/2 months, the usual routine is still just eat, play, sleep, run errands, rinse and repeat. But as he gets older play time will become more exciting and interactive!

  • We color uncooked rice and he plays in it for a sensory thing. For a twist on coloring, we use sidewalk chalk on the canvas we normally lay down for painting.

  • This is why we are making a play room. I need a place that's always got fun things happening.
    We are doing a jumpoline, rope ladder, train table. Art space. And make believe space
