I'm just out of things to do with him. We have been sick the past two weeks and I just found out I'm pregnant so I'm tired. We cant go to the park or anything because my stupid city doesnt have any close by and we're a 1 car family. What kind of fun games can we play? We do have a fenced back yard and lots of toys but I'm looking for stuff we can do together. This age just stumps me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Today we took dried chickpeas and and put them in a bottle one by one and shook up the bottle which he LOVED and it lasted a good 20 min (which totally shocked me). Anyone have any other fun little games? Thanks!!

My DD is just a couple weeks older than your child...<br><br>
Crayons have been big around here...also "wrestling" (she pulls on my legs, I go down on my tummy or back, and she climbs all over me). "Get Mama" is a popular one. She is absolutely LOVING putting objects into different containers and taking them back out again. Drawers are big, if you can stand the mess of clothes flung everywhere. Water play...fill a bucket/bowl/etc. with water, and let her play with either the water or objects (whatever's laying around) in it. Climbing on piles of pillows and blankets is a big winner. We have this weird little game where I "eat" the "baby toes" or "baby belly" or whatever. She thinks it's hilarious, and tries to keep her toes or belly away from me.<br><br>
Sometimes, it's the simplest things that amuse her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

We do all the things the PP said, and DD is also big into just sitting with a bunch of her books and paging through them. She also likes to play with Tupperware containers and measuring cups. We dance every day (just turn on the radio or pop a CD in), go out and run errands when it gets too bad -- the mall is a great place to walk around during the summer (although DH might disagree if he sees our credit card statement -- hee hee)... ummm... pretty much just whatever catches DD's fancy each day. She is constantly changing with what she wants to do. The chickpea thing you did is a great idea-- just keep doing stuff like that!!

All the PPs ideas are spot on with my kiddo. He definitely loves books. I've given him two shelves of a bookcase, the bottom one holds his board books and another one holds the paper books. Sometimes he'll go over and sit on the floor and look through his books for SO LONG! And around 15 months he started constantly bringing me new books to read.<br><br>
If you're tired one day, try sitting down with a book of your own. Dc might come and join you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
