This night, we tried another indoor activity: finger painting! Sort of. We have done finger paints a ton before, but I read to try them in the bathtub! The white tub is the perfect canvas, they can get as messy as they want, and the clean up is super easy!
LL seriously played in this for about 20 - 30 minutes. When she was done, I just took her diaper off, used the sprayer to get the paint off of the actual tub, and then I just filled the tub with water and gaver her her nightly bath! So easy! She really had a blast! I think she really enjoyed it because I wasn't constantly worried about her getting paint everywhere. The only downfall was that once there was a lot of pain, she couldn't crawl around the tub. There was no traction! I thought it was pretty funny, but she didn't.
Do you know of any indoor activities we can try?
I don't have much in the way of ideas, since we're not really to this stage yet. But I read somewhere about The Toddler Busy Book. I think it's probably just what you're looking for! I was just thinking to myself, after reading your last post, that I needed to check it out from the library. Here's a link to it at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Toddlers-Busy-Book-Activities-3-Year-Old/dp/0671317741/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1300324441&sr=8-1

Thanks, Erin! I'll check it out!
