I have 2 boys as well, one is 15 months, the other 3 1/2 years old. For
rainy days, I went on ebay and bought a used microsoft easyball. It is
a huge stationary mouse with only one button to click so they can’t
right click anything.
My 3 year old goes onto starfall.com and roams
all around the site learning phonics.
Do you have a outdoor space for a small garden? Or a space outside to
put some pots? My boys love to water stuff so we plant veggies for them
Peas, beans, radishes and such grow fast enough for them to
hold their interest.
We’ve bought all of their outdoor toys from buysell.com (we’re in
canada, but I’m sure there’s a US equivalent). Little tikes stuff lasts
forever and is so cheap to buy used. They have their own little
playground outside, great for the days when we don’t feeling like
walking to the park.
We try to remember to bring a soccer ball when we
go though, so they have something else to do.
Is there a community playgroup in your area? We have one that gets
together once a week but during the summer they just put on the odd
Other than that.. big hits with my boys
bike rides/wagon rides
little tikes basketball
running like crazy with other kids
puzzles (local library)
baking mini muffins
helping mom clean (I give them damp sponges or paper towel)
I’m sure you do all this stuff too..
but I hope I helped
