It’s been raining a lot here over the past week which has been nice on one hand as it cooled everything down but on the other hand i have had 2 toddlers stuck inside! All this ‘inside together time’ is now getting a touch less fun!
Tara hands me her shoes every morning and goes and stands at the front door….a very pointed message indeed! We have done some splashing in puddles and mud but with the heavy downpours we have been having it gets a little too much (ok….for mummy it does anyway….the chooks and toddler twosome don’t mind all that much if i am to be honest!)
I find you need to keep toddlers extra busy when cooped up inside the house to head off those tantrums and fights….and also make them tired enough for bedtime!So we have been doing all our usual block building and toy fun as well as some inside craft fun that doesn’t make too much mess (you can never expect no mess with toddlers…we all know that!) These are some of the activities we have been doing inside….perhaps you are experiencing similar weather and looking for some ideas….these are very basic, my girls are only 18 months with short attention spans but there has been much fun (and only a few small meltdowns….mummy needed a cup of tea and some time out i’m afraid!)
