Put on some music and have a little swirl or a hop around the kitchen with your little partner.
Grab a laundry basket and a pile of rolled-up socks, stand a few feet away, and see who has great aim.
Window colour wash
Cover the sills carefully and help your child paint some colourful tempera-paint flowers (or blobs) on the window for a springtime vista. To clean up, spray with water, then wipe with paper towels.
Arrange a few hand towels on your carpet (not on slippery surfaces) for some jumping fun.
If you have a hallway (with no breakables on the wall) and a big soft ball, you and your toddler can have an informal soccer game.
It’s not quite like the beach, but water is always fun (with supervision). Fill a shallow dishpan and let your toddler splash and scoop with spoons, funnel, colander, etc. Or maybe he’d like to wash plastic dishes or doll clothes.
