1. Bake cookies (or muffins or cupcakes). If possible, pick a recipe that has multiple steps and make sure to let your toddler help. I know it’s easier to just mix it yourself, but savor the moment and let him spin the spoon around a few times.
4. Pretend you’re a famous photographer. Set up backdrops, lay out different outfits, and use your toddler as a model. If you know how to use your camera’s auto-feature, use it and try to capture a few silly shots of the two of you! Otherwise, just put your toddler in cute outfits and follow her around like the paparazzi.
5. Let Your Toddler Make A (Supervised) Mess. Buy some washable paint and make “prints” of your toddler’s hands and feet. He’ll love the colorful chaos and you’ll end up with some cute keepsakes to display in your house or on your refrigerator…or to present to grandpa & grandma.
YOUR TURN: What indoor activities do you do with your baby or toddler?
