Hi everyone!<br>
I am trying to put together a bowl of cards with fun activities on them that we can do together or dd (23 months) can do on her own, when I am at a loss for something fun to do.<br>
All suggestions welcome!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:<br><br>
ETA: Since it is getting to be colder here we will probably be in the house a lot but outside activities are welcome too!

Good idea! I should do something like this for my DS.<br><br>
-Art projects (maybe specify different ones on the cards)<br>
-Play-do<br>
-Making up dances to music<br>
-Puzzles<br>
-Indoor or outdoor scavenger hunt<br>
-Cooking/baking projects<br>
-Ceramics painting (either at a store or buy to do at home)<br><br>
Mine is younger than yours so I am not sure if all these will work for your DD's age. <a href="http://www.toddlertoddler.com" target="_blank">This site</a> has a lot of games/activities as well that might work.

Hey that's a good idea! I may have to copy you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
DS is the same age, so here are some things he really likes to do:<br><br>
build forts with blankets then crawl inside to read stories or build with blocks<br>
have a parade through the house<br>
sing and dance (songs like the hokey pokey, or I'm a little teapot)<br>
Put on the radio or a cd and get out his instruments and play along<br>
dress up in my clothes or dh's<br>
play on big piles of blankets (jumping on them, rolling around, not sure why this is so great but it keeps him happy for a while! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)<br><br>
I know there's more, but that's all I can think of right now!

look for <a href="http://www.fci.org/viewproduct.asp?ID={0716D045-109F-474E-8D1E-B230CE5B9CB9}" target="_blank">this book</a> at your local library!<br><br>
you can do a different activity everyday, and still have some leftover, at the end of the year!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
some of the activities focus on pretend play, some are craft based (with craft items found around the house) and others are singing/rhyming games.<br><br>
there's even a recipes section. the recipes help kids master hand coordination (with the mixing) and increase tactile and olfactory senses (with touch and smell.)<br><br>
yesterday, we made a homemade lift-the-flap numbers chart...using a cereal box, markers, some glue, and a piece of white paper!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
we ended up buying the book from ebay, after we fell in love with it.
