January Reflections: Fun

January Reflections '11 - 250 x 250

Most things in Declan's toddler world are simple, laugh inducing FUN. Thus, must fun activities I do these days have to do with him. A recent fave: hide and seek ("more hide???" he asks). I will hide in the kitchen or around the corner in the dining room and call his name. He loves to be scared. Like, 48 times in a row, for an hour. Loves it. His laughter is intoxicating and we play this game often.

Now that we are in Old Man Winter's tight grip I'd love to hear what other people do for fun (inside)?

Lately the girls LOVE it when we use these little cars that pull back and then "go" to attack them. Holly brings them to me, drops them and runs. Oh, and we are big into jumping on the trampoline! That would sure give Decs some energy to burn!

We did the same thing last night! It was our first time. I would pretend to chase Alex, and when he was running away, I would slip off and hide. Then he would come looking for me, and I would jump out and scream when he got close. He was laughing so hard. Today while my husband was in the bathroom, Alex started to look for him in all the places we were hiding last night! lol

We have been making silly forts for fun.

We've been blowing bubbles in the house - Ty could catch them for an hour! He also got one of those tall little tikes slides for Christmas. We slide down it every possible way (and I say WE because Ty doesn't think anything is fun unless Mom is doing it too!), we roll balls down it, and shoot cars from the bottom. He even gives elmo rides down and tries to "teach" him how to climb up. That slide has saved us this winter. Hours of fun every day!!

playdough, reading his magazines (he gets National Geographic Little Kids and Highlights High Five) flashcards with colors and pictures on them. He loves it when I take the dining room chairs and put a huge blanket on top and make a tent/fort. He goes in there with his flashlight and he will drive his cars through the giant tunnel. We have an indoor suction cup basketball hoop and a velcro dart board type thing.

We have enjoyed some snow days where we stay in our pajama's pretend we are pirates, play board games, make tents and watch movies together:)
Then when we do get out we have several play places in our area with inflatables, or open gyms:)

Forts! We make them big and we use lots of blankets and kitchen chairs. They love climbing in and out and having me climb in with them. Hide and seek is great. :)

Getting a big sheet of paper (like if you know someone that works at a newspaper shop and you can get the ends of the rolls) and taping it to the dining room floor and painting. With fingers, toes, brushes, whatever. Just gobs of paint...
