playtime creativity

With the cold + mostly wet weather we've been spending just about all of our time indoors. We usually get out of the house to get some errands done, but Ben has had the car on our days off from working daycare, so we've stayed home.

Also, Malakai's naps have been extra long (no complaints here) so by the time he wakes up it's even colder or almost dark. So we've been thinking up lots of ways to have fun inside the house. He has quite a few toys + I try to keep things interesting by rotating them so he doesn't get overwhelmed by too many or bored by playing with the same thing.

We read books, he has a ball pit (aka a turtle sandbox with plastic balls) in his room, he plays in the lid drawer or with his alphabet magnets in the kitchen while I'm washing dishes or preparing food, or another favorite is his mega blocks.

Sometimes it's fun to create new things to do.

The other day I went to get him up from his nap and he was marching around his crib. He was wide awake but not ready to get out of bed. So we had some fun playtime in his crib.

We had so much fun. We played with toys in the tent. We played peek-a-boo with the blankets. 

Then I turned down the lights to let the Twilight Turtle shine.

What are some creative things you've done to entertain your kids or yourself?

Happy Weekend,
