dd's can only take so much colouring, playdoh, reading, pc games, music/dancing on rainy days or days when she's tired and doesn't feel like going outside. I need ideas! Even ones that cost money...

BOARD GAMES!!! She'll learn so much and it can be really fun. I hate candyland (it bores me to bits), but chutes and ladders, Trouble and memory are all good. We also cooked a lot when ds1 was that age. He loved to mix and pour and make creations (show her baking soda and vinegar reacting--that's fun).
Oh--and he LOVED to wash rocks. It is what it sounds like. A bowl of rocks, a sponge and soap, a step stool and a towel to dry them. She can progress to dishes. The fun with water and soap burns at least half an hour, and it's less hands on for you.

hth.

my almost 3 year oild LOVES to cook, help clean the house, scrapbook (i give her pictures and some paper and she tries to make her own scrapbok like mine), stamps, sand art, bowling (set up empty bottles if you don't have a bowling set or nearby alley) play zoo... (she will do this for HOURS) puppet shows, make sock puppets/stick puppets.
